Films, Desire & Digital Spaces

Malaysia

It seems almost unreal to engage in conversations about
desire at a 15th Century fort in India, but that's exactly what Cheekay Cinco and
I did from 7 - 10 March. APC WNSP
organised a panel and workshop at Films of Desire, an event that brought together activists, human
rights advocates, film makers and academics to engage in dialogue around the socio-political
dimensions of representation. The focus of the event was around sexualities,
and how their mis/non/positive representations on screen is related to real
life negotiations on this difficult and shifting terrain.

Posted on behalf of Isabella Matambanadzo, based in Harare, Zimbabwe.

As the commemorations for International Women's Day draw nearer, I am inspired to write to you all about the legacy Sekai Holland and Grace Kwinjeh have made to our movement. I realise that in their immediate roles they are largely seen as representatives of opposition politics, but that is not where they have always been located, and it is certainly not what I wish to focus on through this Style information: Do not use e-mail with a hyphen.

Violence in Zimbabwe

Harare, Zimbabwe

The situation in Zimbabwe has become very oppressive - not universally, but in isolated areas - an indication perhaps of the opposition re-engaging in the high density areas for the impending presidential (and possibly parliamentary) elections next year.

This time round though, it would appear that some of the opposition activists have decided to use violence themselves. Although understandable, it is worrying to consider the consequences of their actions which have not been particularly disciplined or well thought out. The police and army here are bad at the best of times - now with the "justification" of avenging their own injured we could expect to see even more aggravated assault.
