Communicating the Humanities Documentary Film Series

Centre for Humanities Research announces the debut broadcast on Cape Town TV of a collection of films made in its Documentary Film Programme on 1 December, 2023.

Films in the series range from short one-minute experiments to half-hour long films, and include Rui Assubuji’s award-winning THE ART OF HEALING and various other films that have had screenings internationally. The series was co-curated by CHR fellow and ACF director Malik Ntone Edjabe, and will run weekly on CTV until 19 January, 2024.
