About the programme
‘Gata le nna’ in Setswana means ‘walk with me’. The saying is also the title of a popular song by the much loved South African hip hop artist JR. The films selected for Gata le nna, Walk with me invites the audience to go on a journey with us, as we try to navigate the complexities of movement.
Gata le nna, Walk with me is curated by Joan Legalamitlwa and Marie-Hélène Gutberlet
“Films that lead us to reflect on walking, even when there is not much of it, are often films that attempt to wrest a picture from reality and are not already subservient to the norms of its media representation, its invention or domestication.”
(Annett Busch, “The open field”, Shoe Shop 2012, 35-43)
