Synopsis: Apostles of Cinema (or Tenzi za Sinema) follows three devoted film workers in Tanzania as they reintroduce a classic piece of the country’s film history to their working class cinephile audiences. A testament to the profound cultural value of film when made truly accessible.
About the Filmmaker: Ajabu Ajabu is a collective of audio-visual practitioners based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, who work on the preservation, production, and presentation of audio-visual art. Our work is centred around collaborative curatorial interrogations related to deconstructing bias across film cultures, platforming underrepresented narratives and modes of storytelling, and promoting amateur and experimental practice.
