Vitoria-Gasteiz, 2022 10 03


Afrikaldia, Afrikako Zinemen Euskal Jaialdia, gaurtik urriaren 8ra bitartean izango da Gasteizen, eta migrazioa, berdintasuna eta pertsonen mugikortasuna izango ditu ardatz, Afrikaren ikuspegitik. Inaugurazio-ekitaldia Europa Jauregian egin da, Beatriz Artolazabal Eusko Jaurlaritzako Berdintasun, Justizia eta Gizarte Politiketako sailburuaren parte-hartzearekin.

Artolazabal Sailburuaren ustez, ”ohore handia da Euskadin zinegile afrikar eta afrikarrak hartzea, sorkuntza zinematografikoak aurkezten dizkigutelako eta Afrikaren karisma, indarra eta talentua alderatzen dituztelako. Topaketa horrek erraztu egiten du pertsonak eta gizarteak eraldatzea, estereotipoak apurtzea, aurreiritziak eta beldurrak gainditzea, eta, azken batean, tolerantzia eta bizikidetza lantzea”.

 Kulturartekotasuna aberastasuna da eta begiradek eraldatu egiten gaituzte. Euskal lankidetzak herrialde eta lurralde askotako prozesuak laguntzen ditu, pertsona guztiek giza garapen iraunkorra eta justizia soziala lor dezaten. Afrika oso ezezaguna da oraindik, nahiz eta hurbil egon, eta gero eta afrikar jatorriko biztanle gehiago daude gure inguruan. Eusko Jaurlaritzako Berdintasun, Justizia eta Gizarte Politiketako Sailean uste dugu Euskadin ere gizarteari prozesu horien parte izaten lagunduko dioten ekintzak garatu behar ditugula.

 Artolazabalek adierazi duenez, eLankidetza-Garapenerako Lankidetzaren Euskal Agentziak hainbat ekimen babesten ditu, hala nola Afrikaldia, ezagutza bultzatzen eta herritarrak sentsibilizatzen dituztenak, aniztasuna ospatzen dutenak, kulturen arteko bizikidetzaren alde egiten dutenak eta zinemaren eta topaguneen bidez gogoeta eginarazten dutenak.

Bertan izan dira, halaber, Alvaro Iradier, Afrikanistaren presidentea, Beatriz Leal, Lehiaketaren programatzailea eta Paul Ortega, eLankidetza-Garapenerako Lankidetzaren Euskal Agentziako zuzendaria. Izaera lehiakorreko nazioarteko zinema-lehiaketa hau publiko guztiei zuzenduta dago. Florida zinemetan dozena bat proiekzio izango dira, Afrikako errealitatea kalitatezko zinemaren bidez ezagutzeko.

Afrikaldia Manuel Iradier Afrikar Elkarteak eta Bendera Kultura Elkarteak antolatzen dute. Jaialdiaren astean zehar, hainbat zuzendari, aktore eta aktore Araba-Arabako Campusean izango dira, Afrikako herrialdeek bizi duten egoera politiko eta migratzaileaz hausnartzeko eta eztabaidatzeko.

Euskadiko hiriburuko Florida zinema-aretoetan proiektatuko diren filmen artean, berdintasunari, gazteriari, migrazioei eta garapenerako lankidetzari lotutako hainbat eduki daude.

Lankidetzak

Montehermoso Jauregia izango da jaialdiaren beste topaguneetako bat. Gasteiz Film Office-ren lankidetzarekin industria atala landuko da, sektoreko profesionalentzako topaleku bat, nazioko eta nazioarteko gonbidatuekin hitzaldi eta eztabaida ziklo bat izango duena.

 Gainera, edizio berri honetan, jardunaldi akademikoak errepikatuko dira. Afrikako kultura UPV/EHUko ikasleei hurbiltzeko asmoz, Arabako Campusak 4 titulu proiektatuko ditu, ondoren Afrikaldiaren bigarren edizioaren gai nagusian espezializatutako dinamizatzaileekin solasaldi bat eginez amaitzeko.
Afrikaldiak aliantza baten aldeko apustua egin du berriz ere Gasteizko Udalaren kaleko hezkuntza programekin. Hiriko hainbat gizarte-etxetan, Karina Senatorek, Afrikaldiaren kartelaren diseinatzaileak, 12 eta 17 urte bitarteko nerabeentzako collage artistikoko tailer bat zuzenduko du.

Xedeak

Afrikaldia da penintsulako iparraldeko Afrikako Zinemen Jaialdi bakarra. Kultura Bendera Elkartea eta Manuel Iradier Afrikar Elkartea erakunde sustatzaileek giza garapen integrala sustatzen dute, Afrikako kulturen aniztasuna eta aberastasuna ikusaraziz. Gainera, euskal kulturaren eta afrikarren arteko topaguneak sustatu nahi dira, gizarte-kohesioa bultzatuz.

 Erakunde sustatzaileez gain, Gasteizen finkatuta dauden Afrikako pertsonen hamabi elkartek aktiboko parte hartzen dute Afrikaldia´rekin. Horien guztien artean, gizarteen arteko zubiak eraikitzen laguntzen dute, Afrikari buruzko begirada zabalduz eta haren ekoizpen zinematografikoari balioa emanez.

Bigarren edizio honetako kartela Karina Senatorek egin du, Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatean Sorkuntzan eta Diseinuan graduatua. Afrikako kontinentearen migrazio-errealitatea islatzen duen irudia da, eta bi gaztek ordezkatzen dute, oro har, prozesu horietan gehien inplikatutako biztanleria.
