South Africa – A New Country + talk
Datum: Lör 24 sep, 2022

On South Africa's National Heritage Day, we invite you to the screening of the documentary A New Country directed by Sifiso Khanyile. After the screening our guest Rahel W. Sebhatu will join us for a talk.

Almost 30 years after its birth as a democratic country, South Africa remains one of the most unequal societies in the world. A New Country takes a sobering look at recent history, from the early days of liberation to an increasingly fractured contemporary society still battling the legacies of apartheid, colonialism, and continuing racial and economic inequality, 26 years after apartheid ended. Director Sifiso Khanyile assembles an impressive chorus of activists, leaders, educationalists and artists who comment on the past three decades with perplexed candour and direct outrage. 

After the screening, Rahel W. Sebhatu will give a brief background about The Anti-Apartheid Movement and how the colonial legacies of apartheid are still affecting South Africans today.

Rahel W. Sebhatu is a PhD candidate in Global Politics at the Department of Global Political Studies at Malmö University. She is also the Vice-President of the Pan-African Movement for Justice (Afrosvenskarnas Forum för Rättvisa), a board member of the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) and the Research Director for Afresist. 

Please note: Both the screening and the following talk will be in English.


September 24th is the National Heritage Day in South Africa that has been celebrated officially since 1995. On this day, South Africans are encouraged to celebrate their culture, diversity and heritage.
