Movies: Homage to Jacob Barua, Jul. 24 2010 @ Goethe-Institut

Jacob Barua is one of Kenya’s finest filmmakers. A graduate of the University of Warwick, UK, he went on to study film directing at the famous National Film School in Lodz, Poland. His award winning films have been screened at numerous film festivals around the world and yet his work is little known in Kenya. Jacob’s collaboration on many of his films with his brother Stan, a renowned Director of Photography, has earned them the Barua Brothers tag. Their works are defined by sophisticated aesthetics and the exploration of memory and history through narrative forms. Besides his film directing Jacob has been engaged in arts management, ranging from artistic director of a Warsaw-based TV station, to a posting as the festival director of the Zanzibar International Film Festival, for 2005/6, two of its now legendary editions, having trained in Festival and Event Management at the Deutsche Welle Akademie in Berlin, Germany.
