Visionary Archive is a collaborative translocal experiment: Phases and facets of African cinema are being researched in five localities. The relationship between phenomena related to film history in Cairo, Khartoum, Johannesburg, Bissau and Berlin is being formulated and examined. The term “African cinema” is an open bracket in which historical echoes come into their own, as do open questions. Findings and films were regularly discussed with different audiences, and in May 2015 the project culminated in a comprehensive closing program in Berlina comprehensive final presentation that took place at Arsenal cinema, at Scriptings project space, at Archive Kabinett and in public space.
