Event Description

The Bioscope is proud to once again host The Encounters Documentary Film Festival in Johannesburg.


Dir. Jacqueline Gozland

2017 | France | Algeria| 76min

Africa’s most impressive centre of film, the Algerian Cinematheque, opened its doors in January 1965 at the instigation of Mohammed Moussaoul, who had been active in the FLN during the war of liberation. After being appointed as the Head of the National Cinema Centre, his plan for a cinema-literate Algeria reached untold heights. The Cinematheque under directors such as Ahmed Hocine and the charismatic Boujemaa Kareche, programmed five screenings a day for packed audiences and travelled the programmes throughout Algeria. International directors such as Costa Gavras and Werner Herzog were attracted by the vibrant atmosphere and the development of truly Pan African filmmaking. Algerian filmmakers saw it as their school. For four decades the cinematheque thrived before political changes sent it into decline. Jacqueline Gozland was a habitué of the venue, who left for France when the changes began. This is the film of her return and a love letter to a truly divine centre of cinema worship.



Dir Hana Mahmoud

2018 | Egypt |23 minutes

This impressionistic documentary chronicles the obsession of the filmmaker with her mentor, who disappeared from her life several years ago. Unable to give up on her search, she finds herself trapped in archival recordings of a series of lectures that he gave. The result is a fractured meditation on friendship, love, loneliness, and the creative process.
