The Dapper Museum held a screening last Saturday afternoon of the film Berlin 1885, la ruée sur l’Afrique (Berlin 1885 – The Scramble for Africa). Following the 90-minute projection, a lively discussion ensued between Joël Calmettes (the filmmaker), Mathilde Leduc-Grimaldi (curator of the Belgium Royal Museum for Central Africa), Brice Ahounou (anthropologist and journalist), and members of the audience.
