'Ota Benga' & 'Boma Turvuren: The Voyage' presented by Congo in Harlem 4
Ota Benga

Dir. Alfeu França, 2002, 16 min.
Ota Benga was a pygmy who was brought from the Belgian Congo to the US to be exhibited in the 1904 World's Fair. França presents Ota Benga's tragic story to a haunting stream of archival images and animation, offering a cautionary tale of colonial-era racism and exploitation.

Boma Turvuren: The Voyage

Dir. Francis Dujardin, 1999. 84 min.
In French with English subtitles
In 1897, 267 Congolese were brought to Brussels for the World's Fair. Subjected to the crushing gaze of the whites and the cold climate, many fell to disease and some lost their lives. One hundred years later, Congolese scholars return to the scene, revisiting a legacy of stereotypes and mistreatment, prompting the question "How is today different?"
