The Woman King plus intro and expert Q&A

Saturday 17 December 2pm

The Agojie were an all-female unit of warriors who protected the African kingdom of Dahomey in the 1800s. The story follows the emotionally epic journey of General Nanisca who trains the next generation of recruits to defend their way of life and fight against enslavement. Presented by Dr Michelle Asantewa, a member of the African Odysseys steering Committee, the screening will be followed by a discussion of its themes and treatment of African history.
