Brighton Festival x CINECITY

We’re thrilled to be partnering once again with Brighton Festival to present this year’s film strand.

Diversity is at the core of this year’s festival programme and we have been working with 2019 Guest Director Rokia Traoré to put together a series of films to reflect this.

We’ll be presenting a 35mm presentation of Malian filmmaker Souleyman Cissé’s 1987 film Yeelen (Brightness) at the Duke of York’s; a screening of Julien Faraut’s experimental film essay John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection; plus The End of Fear, Barbara Visser’s documentary about one of the most famous crimes against art ever committed.

Malian singer, songwriter and guitarist Rokia Traoré, is regarded as one of Africa’s most inventive musicians, with her work rooted in the Malian musical tradition yet defying the confines of a single culture.
