The program consists of three short films from Cinelogue's film library section Movements Towards Liberation, curated by Jacqueline Nsiah. The films deal with different forms of human movement, the memory of colonization and neo-colonial conditions.

You Hide Me reveals rare Asante art treasures stolen by the British that have never been shown before. Uprize! provides a glimpse into 1970s South Africa and the cost of the fight for quality education and freedom. L'Escale is a testimony by filmmakers Paul Shemisi and Nizar Saleh that gives an insight into the impossibility for Congolese artists to travel easily and safely.
