The sixteenth edition of the Lusophone Film Fest Nairobi will be on the 7-May as of 5pm at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi. We will have a Portuguese documentary about the family left behind when people emigrate, a Brazilian short about a man tormented by his national football team loss in the 1950, and a Mozambican feature film about keeping the balance between the world of the living and the one of the spirits:
– Antonio, Dashing Antonio (Portugal, 2015, Ana Maria Gomes)
– Barbosa (Brazil, 1988, Jorge Furtado and Ana Luiza Azevedo)
– The Last Flight of the Flamingo (Mozambique, 2010, João Ribeiro)
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. More info in https://www.facebook.com/Lusophonefilmfest
