    Screening of the documentary "The Uprising" (1h 33m) and Q&A with filmmaker Pravini Baboeram and Arzu Merali (head of research at IHRC).

    Pravini says:

    "This film tells the story I was looking for but couldn’t find. Countless films have been made that touch on issues related to racism. But very few of them actually address the link with the colonial past and the common challenges different communities of color face. And none of the films I encountered focus on the European context and current struggles of people of color."
