Panel Discussion: How has the New Media Act Affected Journalism in Kenya? Dec. 16 2014 @ Goethe-Institut

Date: December 16 2014
Time: 6.00 pm
Venue: Goethe-Institut, Auditorium
Admission: free

How has the New Media act affected journalism in Kenya?
In December 2013, Kenya’s National Assembly passed the Kenya Information and Communications (Amendment) Act (KICA), and the Media Council Act. The new media law enables a new government-controlled board (Communications and Multimedia Appeals Tribunal) to revoke journalists’ accreditation, and fine journalists up to 500.000/= KSh (media companies up to 20 million KSh) if they breach a government-dictated code of conduct.

Journalists and members of Parliament, moderated by Peter Murimi (investigative journalist and film maker), will examine the challenges the media face operating under this act.

In cooperation with the Embassy of Switzerland.

After finishing studies, Stephanie played main parts in various theater productions, for example at Staatstheater Kassel, Deutsches Schauspielhaus in Hamburg, Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin, and The Helmi International Puppet Theatre. She took part in various cinema, short film and television productions and sings in her band BETON. ADDICTED TO ACTING, a seven years documentary for cinema, directed by Andres Veiel, won the Berlinale Panorama Audience Award 2004.

“Staub auf unseren Herzen – Dust on our Hearts” 87 mins, 2013
Director: Hanna Doose, Writer: Hanna Doose
Stars: Susanne Lothar, Stephanie Stremler, Oskar Bökelmann

DUST ON OUR HEARTS follows 30-year-old Kathi, who dreams of succeeding as an actress in Berlin. Her overbearing mother Chris works as a life coach and likes to apply her professional knowledge to analyse her daughter’s problems, at times to great humorous effect and with strong hints at Cassavettes’ legendary acting techniques. When Kathi’s father suddenly returns after a 15-year absence, she finds herself in a cross-fire between her bickering parents. To complicate matters, Kathi temporarily loses her own four-year-old son.
