13th Lusophone Film Fest POSTER
The thirteenth edition of the Lusophone Film Fest Nairobi will be on the 28-Nov as of 5 pm at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi, showcasing two Brazilian shorts about urban art and a feature film about the liberation struggle of Angola:

– Walls Upon Us (Brazil, 2013, Chico Toledo)
– Women are Heroes – Brazil (Brazil, 2009, JR)
– Njinga, Queen of Angola (Angola, 2013, Sérgio Graciano)

Recognised with international awards at film festivals around the globe, the cinema from the Portuguese-speaking world is still mostly unknown to the general public. This 240 million people linguistic community is a thriving one, promoting over 80 film festivals and cinema awards every year, with movies mostly consumed in the respective countries.

The Lusophone Film Fest is a showcase of the diversity of film production in the eight Portuguese-speaking countries spread across 4 continents. The festival presents multiple works (documentaries, animations, shorts and feature films), in sessions of several films from the different countries.

The event is free of charge.
