BOMA TERVUREN
Sunday, August 3, 2014 @ 4PM

Boma Tervuren illustrates the astonishing and tragic saga of 267 Congolese individuals brought to Brussels for the 1897 World's Fair. After four, gruesome months towards Belgium, they were subject to exploitation and abuse by being exhibited before thousands. Subjected to severe maltreatment and open exposure to the cold, foreign climate, many Congolese fell prey to disease and lost their lives. One hundred years later, Congolese compatriots return to the scene of these casualties and question Belgians about the unimaginable horror that was the 1897 "human zoo."

Ultimately, Boma Tervuren revisits a century when stereotyped conceptions about Africans prevailed and the White gaze oscillated between paternalism and contempt. The film implicitly inquiries, "How much have these perceptions changed?" (Belgium, 1999, 54 min, Francis Dujardin, dir., Documentary)
