AN AFRICAN FILM CLUB IN BLOEMFONTEIN, SOUTH AFRICA

Free Public Screening of Intellectual Giants of the Eastern Cape

On 09 February 2024, CineBa! is opening its doors for a free public screening of Anette Schoon’s local documentary, Intellectual Giants of the Eastern Cape. This screening invites the public to engage on the history of a much-neglected province and for the Free State audience, to also think about our own.

In this film Dr Hleze Kunju sets off on a roadtrip to introduce a new generation of students to the intellectual giants of the Eastern Cape and to invite them to walk in their footsteps. The various stops along the journey include the milkwood tree where the Mfengu embraced education, Rev Tiyo Soga’s church, Hunterstoun, Lovedale Institute, Lovedale Press and Fort Hare University, as well as several historic sites in Makhanda.
