They Will Have To Kill Us First: Malian Music in Exile (dir. Johanna Schwartz) is a feature-length documentary folllowing musicians in Mali in the wake of a jihadist takeover and subsequent banning of music. Music, one of the most important forms of communication in Mali, disappeared overnight in 2012 when Islamic extremists groups rose up to capture an area the size of the UK and France combined. But rather than lay down their instruments, Mali’s musicians fought back. This screening is courtesy British Council – Nigeria.

When: Friday 9th June 2017, 4PM.

Where: Goethe-Institut Nigeria, 4th Floor, City Hall, 30 Catholic Mission Street, Lagos.

Sumé: The Sound Of A Revolution (dir. Inuk Silis Høegh) From 1973 to 1976 the Greenlandic rock band Sumé released three albums and changed the history of Greenland. The group’s political songs were the first to be recorded in the Greenlandic language – a language that prior to Sumé didn’t have words for “revolution” or “oppression”. After 250 years of Danish colonization Sumé set in motion a revival of Greenlandic culture and identity, and paved the way for a Greenlandic home rule government.

Song Of Lahore examines the lives and the cultural heritage of Pakistan’s classical musicians, and asks whether there is still room for them in a society roiled by social and religious upheaval. After toiling in obscurity for years, an innovative album leads Sachal Studios to international acclaim, and a triumphant concert with Wynton Marsalis and his orchestra at Jazz at Lincoln Center. This feature length documentary by Academy Award winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Andy Schocken follows their dramatic journey, and asks if they will ever find an audience at home.
