Film “AMANDLA!”

The moving documentary film “Amandla!” (2002, OV English, 99 min., Lee Hirsch, South Africa, FSK 12) beams us back to the time of the struggle for freedom in South Africa. The story of the resistance is told through music. Music that was forbidden to blacks under the apartheid regime. Today, many of these songs have become national anthems. “Amandla!” translates to power or strength and reminds us of our duty to resist injustice worldwide together.

South African Music Party at Monro’s Park

Hip hop, boogie, kwaito, bubblegum … DJ Häppy/Vinyl Reserve will be spinning music rarities from a South African radio station on original vinyl. Sound of the 80s and 90s will pull us from the chairs to the dance floor. Monro’s Park is located at Hospitalstraße 29, 37073 Göttingen.

The entrance is free. We ask for prior registration via Anja Belz/EPIZ: 0551 487141, belz@epiz-goettingen.de.
