We are excited to announce our exciting DVD box set of films from one of world cinema’s greatest living documentarians: Rosine Mbakam. PRISMS AND PORTRAITS: THE FILMS OF ROSINE MBAKAM is collectable, deluxe 4 DVD set that contains four of her critically acclaimed, award winning features as well as two, previously unavailable shorts films.

Rosine Mbakam’s powerful empathetic documentary films focus on the migrant experiences of women and the legacies of colonialism. Cameroonian-born and Belgium-based Mbakam constructs films with a patient rigor devoted to giving the women she features space to tell their own stories.

THE TWO FACES OF A BAMILEKE WOMAN

Mbakam’s feature debut is a sharply observed, nuanced, and powerful

PRISM

Exploring the question “Is the very technology of cinema racist?” three women
