PROJECT NAME:

GUANGZHOU DREAM FACTORY FILM SCREENING

LOCATION:

REDROSE, BEIJING

DATE:

DECEMBER 5TH, 2018

In December 2018, Kente and Silk screened the thought-provoking documentary: GUANGZHOU DREAM FACTORY by Christiane Badgley and Erica Marcus. The documentary features a dynamic cast of men and women from all over Africa and weaves the stories of Africans chasing alluring, yet elusive, “Made in China” dreams into a compelling critique of 21st century global capitalism.
“Guangzhou Dream Factory” focuses on one narrative of Africans in China, and its screening provided an opportunity for Kente & Silk to engage Beijing residents in a discussion on the other narratives, the challenges faced by African migrants and potential solutions.

The event drew out over a 120 people and featured an engaging panel featuring:
– Erica Marcus, Producer of the Film
– Marcus Ryder, CGTN Multimedia Executive & Renowned Documentary Film Maker
– Judith Wandia Mwai, Rotaract Beijing President
– Boithabiso Mokoena, Co-Founder of Thrive Beijing
