Nottingham Refugee Week: Beats of the Antonov - New Art Exchange - Nottingham

At the core of this documentary from war reporter Hajooj Kuka is a music movement. Telling the story of the Sudanese populations of the Blue Nile and Nuba Mountain regions, the film is structured around the daily bombings carried out by the Sudanese government aiming to blast these 'rebels' out of existence. These tactics have only reinforced a determination to preserve a specifically African culture and led to the rich mix of music that has sprung up around the impromptu celebrations staged after surviving each bombing.FREE15yrs+We recommend booking for all events.
