Film screening: Tides of Gold

Simon Bright (Zimmedia Productions) will give the next seminar in the African Peoples and Pasts series at the Institute on 16 January.

In a change to the usual seminar format, the documentary film 'Tides of Gold' which looks at the gold trade associated with the first southern African city-states and the links that developed with the coast and beyond will be screened to be followed by a talk by the film's producer and co-director Simon Bright (Zimmedia Productions) and a Q&A session. A focus of discussion will be plans to expand the documentary into a six-part series covering the rest of the continent.

All are welcome. The event will be followed by a wine reception in the Staff Common Room. 

Any enquiries about the event may be directed to Oli Boles.
