Beethoven: Violin Sonata No. 5 in F major, Op. 24, – “Springsonata”
Leoš Leoš Janá?ek – – Sonata for violin and piano
Richard Strauss – Violin Sonata in E flat major, Op.18
Salim Amin, son and only child of Mohamed “Mo” Amin, undertakes a journey of recollection and reflection into the life of the frequently absent, globe-trotting father he loved, revered and feared. In his late teens, Mohamed Amin abandons his studies to pursue a career in photography which, over the course of thirty years, will turn him into a front-line cameraman extraordinaire – and, arguably, the most renowned photojournalist of his era. Training his candid lens across continents, Mo Amin’s thirst for breaking news puts him repeatedly in harm’s way – enduring weeks of torture, automatic arms fire, explosives and, ultimately, the amputation of his left arm – to become one of the most decorated news camera-man of all time. The documentary depicts Mo as an unbending, unforgiving and unapologetically rambunctious paterfamilias whose hunger for “the story” propels him to ever greater professional heights – often at the expense of those he cherishes. The 96-minute film is underpinned by extraordinary images from the vast Amin archive – currently available at World Picture Network in New York. The stills mark and frame Mo’s life as it unfolds in a vivid and, at times, grisly tableau of international politics. Fuelled by a potent mixture of talent and ambition, Mo’s stubborn courage, innate resilience and wily perseverance loom large as he encounters horror and brutality in the course of his indefatigable quest to inform, alert and chronicle.
Charity Event in Aid of Palestinians in Gaza: A Note for a Smile, Nov. 27 2014 @ Lord Erroll – Runda
The six-week conflict this summer left more than 1,870 dead and thousands injured, homeless, and traumatized. The conflict had a particularly devastating toll on Gaza’s youngest and most vulnerable. Many of the affected children have suffered serious injuries that cannot be treated in Gaza due to limited medical capacity caused by the ongoing blockades, and others suffer from severe traumatic disorders. They need our solidarity and support.
A group of us working in various humanitarian and development capacities in Nairobi have decided to organize a charity event to encourage the community to contribute to the work of Palestinian health institutions to restore dignity and hope to the Palestinians in Gaza.
All funds raised during the evening will go towards supporting the activities of Makassed Hospital in Jerusalem, as well as to the Gaza Mental Health Community Center.
During the event we will hold a silent art auction showcasing a number of world-class artists from the contemporary East African art scene, who have kindly contributed their work to raising funds for this cause. The impressive line-up of artists includes Fitsum Behre Woldelibanos, Eltayeb Dawelbait, Michael Soi, Anthony Okello, Paul Onditi, Shabu Mwangi, John Silver, Justus Kyalo, Dennis Muraguri, Yassir Ali Mohammed, Mariantonietta Peru and Kamal Shah.
There will be music throughout the night with live sets from some of the best musicians in Nairobi who have accepted to perform for the cause, including Idd Aziz, Teto, Jahm, Afro Simba and Mutinda.
Designers’ fair (featuring Otenge, Chilly Mango, Madafu Moxie); a raffle with a chance to win exciting prizes; food and drinks (cash-bar), and more surprises await you…
Please note that your ticket number will be your registration number for the art auction.
Bids will be open from 17:00 to 21:00!
