About This Event

The Center for Italian Culture's Nuovo Mondo series continues with a screening of Maka (2023), which tells of Geneviève Makaping's life in Italy and perilous migration journey. Inspired by Reversing the Gaze by Geneviève Makaping, a Cameroonian-Italian anthropologist, writer, and the first black woman to serve as the editor of a newspaper in Italy, Maka explores Makaping’s perilous migration journey and her life in Italy, offering a poignant reflection on displacement, identity, and belonging. Following the screening, Associate Professor Kevin McCarthy of the Communications Media Department will facilitate a virtual question and answer session with the film’s director, Simone Brioni.
