“Heroic Bodies” highlights the development of the Sudanese women’s movement within the framework of the body politics. It investigates how the human body was used as a means of resistance against the state, patriarchy and colonial oppression. This film demonstrates different events in which the body became a common refractor for various kinds of repression and resistance that occurred during the eras of British colonialism and post-independence. It will further examine how the body engaged in creative practices that contributed to the process of Sudanese women’s emancipation.
