Cinematic work and colonial history. Film talk with Perivi Katjavivi (Windhoek)

Film making as knowledge creation is targeting the colonial archive in multiple ways. Colonial history in its broad and specific, principally violent and manifold long-term consequences is scrutinized vigorously. The Namibian filmmaker Perivi Katjavivi provides insights into and film snippets from his cinematic work on topical Namibian narratives and talks with the historian Dag Henrichsen about his motivations and visions.
