From Michele Lancione:
I would like to draw your attention to a film screening I put together at the forthcoming RGS-IBG conference. The film is called ‘A inceput ploaia/It started raining‘, and it is about evictions and the fight for housing in Bucharest (Romania). You can watch the trailer here (https://vimeo.com/203610201) and read more about this project at www.ainceputploaia.com
The screening will be followed by a panel chaired by Alex Vasudevan discussing visual methods, ethnography at the urban margins, activism and evictions, with Gillian Rose, AbdouMaliq Simone, Katherine Brickell and Liviu Chelcea.
Both will take place on Thursday, 31st:
– Film screening: Session 3, 14:40 – 16:20, Sir Alexander Fleming Building, Lecture Theatre G34
– Panel: Session 4, 16:50 – 18:30, Sir Alexander Fleming Building, Lecture Theatre G34
