Film Screening Fundraiser: Talking About Trees (2019)

The Platform team excitedly welcomes you to a screening of the film Talking About Trees (2019), directed by Suhaib Gasmelbari Mustafa.

The film follows the story of 4 retired filmmakers: Manar Al Hilo, Ibrahim Shadad, Altayeb Mahdi and Suleiman Mohamed Ibrahim. In an arduous journey reflecting both the historical struggles and resistance of Sudani people everywhere, we witness the story of the Sudanese Film Group as they courageously navigate through layers of censorship and bureaucracy to revive an outdoor movie theater in Omdurman.

Join us for the screening and a catered reception on Friday, April 19th, 2024.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be going to providing food, housing, and safe travel for Sudanese community members trying to survive what has now been over one year of severe humanitarian crises.

If you would like to buy a ticket for someone or would like to donate to the relief fund, please contact us for support.

This screening is possible thanks to Innis College and the support of the team at Innis Town Hall.
