A still shot from the film 'Beats of the Antonov'

What can music do in the face of a refugee crisis?

Join us for Beats of the Antonov, a film that offers a glimpse into the everyday life of the Sudanese, who—although they have lost kin, homes, and farmsimprovise ways to continue harvesting their crops and raising cattle. Sudanese filmmaker Hajooj Kuka weaves together the voices of militants, social workers, intellectuals, and everyday people to tell the story of refugees reclaiming their humanity in the midst of a complex conflict. "I named the film after the Antonov, a Russian airplane bombing the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile," he says."'Beats' refers to the sound of the bombing—people are running, and they are scared—but 'beats' also refers to the music that heals people."

This film screening is hosted by the Stan Getz Library as a part of the Signature Series at Berklee. Be sure to check out the related Berklee Performance Center concert, Al-Murtaja: A Celebration of Sudanese Music.
