The Genome Chronicles, created in memoriam to Donald Rodney, references previously unseen Super 8 footage taken by Rodney and is interlaced with Akomfrah’s personal film archive.

Akomfrah speaks about the influences and ideas that led to the making of The Genome Chronicles. A short Q&A will follow and then the film will be screened at 5pm, the last screening on that day.
