Book Launch: A Night Guide through the City-In-The-Sun by Tony Mochama aka Smitta, Mar. 5 2014 @ Arfa Lounge
Have you heard of the legendary Nairobi Night Runner? No?! Then the next publication in the Contact Zones NRB book series and the second issue of its Rogue Series shall hit the spot.
Tony Mochama’s Nairobi – A Night Guide through the City-in-the-Sun reveals the vibrant, eccentric and extreme city of Nairobi that is made up of different and contradictory worlds.
Nairobi is also an elusive city; difficult to comprehend and fully penetrate. What better guide can there be than Tony Mochama, the notorious and popular chronicler of Nairobi’s urban life? Haunted by his doppelganger the Night Runner – a naked, mad and mythical being who, in popular rural Kenyan imagination, runs from house to house casting spells – Mochama will carry you along on his journeys through Nairobi.
His is a declaration of love for the city-in-the-sun, after the sun has gone down.
Part of Goethe Institute’s Contact Zones NRB publication series.
House Of Lungula has been doing rounds in cinemas to a very impressive reception. It premiered both at Century Cinemax The Junction Nairobi and in Nyali Cinemax Mombasa in front of full houses! The movie made it to the international stage also, with 2 screenings in Bristol England this week.
The Producers of the movie heard the cry of the many Nairobians who were not able to catch it at Junction Cinemax because of the distance and have now managed to bring the movie closer to you.
This Wednesday the 12th of February at 6.30pm the adult comedy will have its official premier at IMAX Kenya – Arfa Lounge – Mama Ngina street (CBD) – with the movie stars in full 3D! It will be a red carpet affair with drinks and canapés followed by a screening of the movie for just Ksh 300!
