Join us for a day with Wakaliga, aka Wakaliwood, the notorious collective and film production studio based in Kampala’s Wakaliga neighbourhood. Best known for its ultra-low budget, special-effect Bruce-Lee homage action movies, such as “Who Killed Captain Alex?” or “Bad Black and Tebaatusasula”, Wakaliwood’s community-led practice of film exhibition is geared towards a local viewing culture. Introducing the video joker, a physical narrator whose sharp commentary enhances screen activity, the film screening turns into a performance, a participatory interaction between the screen and its audiences. Wakaliwood are participating artists at this year’s documenta 15 in Kassel.
At SAVVY Contemporary and in the backyard of Panke Club, Issac Godfrey Geoffrey Nabwana and Harriet Nakasujja of the Wakaliga team are invited to convene an afternoon session of “kibanding” to play and pause on questions of performative film screening practices, including a public screening of selective works followed by an open exchange with all present. By introducing dynamics found in a kibanda, a video hall with a VJ narrating while a film is played, we will be exploring the sub_version of imaginaries and spelling of worlds.
The workshop takes place in the frameworks of SAVVY Contemporary’s research and exhibition project Magical Hackerism – probing cultures, realities and worlds through the remix and reappropriation of technologies from a Tropikós perspective (tropics as region and mindset) and United Screens, SAVVY’s long term research and networking project on alternative ecosystems for South-South cinema and video art circulation.

COLLABORATION & SUPPORT Magical Hackerism is a SAVVY Contemporary project in collaboration with panke.gallery, funded by the Senate Department of Culture and Europe.
