Date: August 31, 2012
Venue: Westgate

Synopsis
A young aspiring actor from upcountry Kenya dreams of becoming an accomplished actor one day, and in pursuit of this and the chagrin of his brother and parents, he makes his way to Nairobi the city of opportunity. He quickly understands why Nairobi is nicknamed Nairrobery as he is robbed of all his money and belongings and left alone in a city where he doesn’t know a soul. Luck, or the lack of it, brings him face to face with the city’s criminals and forms a friendship with a small time crook who takes him in. He is quickly drawn into a world of crime as he struggles to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. Keeping the two worlds separate proves to be a challenge for him as he trudges on in this unknown world called Nairobi. This is the story of a young man who despite all odds trudges on in search of his dream. His drive and soft spoken nature are his best resources. His determination is encouraging and he is a true testament that what stands between us and our goals is us.

This movie is directed by David Tosh Gitonga

TEDxCinemaNairobi, May 7 2011 @ Westgate

TEDx Cinema -  a Gathering for Curious Minds
Free, Saturday 7th May 2011, 10:30am (sharp!) to 12noon, Cinema 6, Westgate Mall, Nairobi

This week’s theme is a behind-the-scenes look at the complex economics and drivers of radical mercenary groups & global crime networks. Insights into the parallel world that exists right in front of us, with their own law, ethics and fully fledged economy.  This week’s videos feature:

Once it was easy to know where our money was going. Now we live under a system Loretta Napoleoni has dubbed “rogue economics,” where the blurry histories of the products we consume and the cash we invest make us complicit in financing barely legal credit schemes — and even crime, if it’s the slavery producing the beans for our lattes or the guts of our mobile phones. The reach of the newly global market, as Napoleoni argues in her new book, Rogue Economics: Capitalism’s New Reality, connects us all to the dark side, regardless of our intentions to be responsible  — and, she says, our deep connection to fishy credit and unregulated finance has laid the groundwork for the current economic crisis.

Journalist Misha Glenny spent several years in a courageous investigation of organized crime networks worldwide, which have grown to an estimated 15% of the global economy. From the Russian mafia, to giant drug cartels, his sources include not just intelligence and law enforcement officials but criminal insiders.

TEDx Cinema Nairobi, Mar 5 2011 @ Westgate

Free, Saturday 5th March 2011, 10am (for 10.30)-12noon, Silverbird Cinema, Westgate Mall, Nairobi

This event is a forum to spark creative engagement between like-minded people.  A place where we can challenge our fundamental beliefs and explore new ways of thinking.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

Every Saturday two videos of talks from the renowned TED conferences are shown followed by a casual discussion.

This weeks theme: Possessions

Can happiness be bought? To find out, author Benjamin Wallace sampled the world’s most expensive products, including a bottle of 1947 Chateau Cheval Blanc, 8 ounces of Kobe beef and the fabled (notorious) Kopi Luwak coffee. His critique may surprise you.  Benjamin Wallace is a journalist and author of The Billionaire’s Vinegar, the true story of the world’s most expensive bottle of (possibly phony?) wine.

In this funny and insightful talk from TEDxHouston, builder Dan Phillips tours us through a dozen homes he’s built in Texas using recycled and reclaimed materials in wildly creative ways. Brilliant, low-tech design details will refresh your own creative drive.
