[Non-YCLA Event] The Ridiculous Darkness with talk by Steven Nelson '85

Deep in the rain forests of Afghanistan… two soldiers on a top-secret mission collide with Somali pirates, a horndog missionary, a depressed parrot and more, egged on by a playwright struggling to tell a story that may not even be his to tell. Wolfram Lotz casts a timely, absurdist eye on cultural and economic colonialism in this satire of the classic Heart of Darkness and its hallucinatory 1979 film adaptation, Apocalypse Now. (U.S. premiere)

Join us on 11/5, as Steven Nelson, Yale Alum '85, Director of the UCLA African Studies Center discusses the impact of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness on Western views of Africa and the rise of countervaling voices in the fields of art and cultural history.
