Until 31 July, CINEMATEK presents a selection of 26 films as part of The Act of Breathing. The programme has been put together by the Belgian-Congolese filmmaker Monique Mbeka Phoba.


The Act of Breathing is a pluridisciplinary event bringing together visual artists around the theme of Kinshasa and Brussels, both in Brussels and on the Asiat site in Vilvoorde. The screenings at CINEMATEK are accompanied by an exhibition of works by Mega Mingiedi, Agnès Lalau and Jean Kabuta, curated by Sorana Munsya and Evelyn Simons. Both are also curators of the exhibition The Act of Breathing at the Horst site in Vilvoorde. The Act of Breathing is part of Living Traces, a bridging project between Kinshasa and Brussels initiated by KANAL-Centre Pompidou.
