About
The first Nairobi Documentary Festival looks at Africa’s youngest child, South Sudan.
The inaugural Nairobi Documentary Festival documents life and the lingering crisis in the world’s youngest country which marked 5 yrs of independence in July 2016 amid renewed violence.

Through three documentaries by Kenyan reporters ‘Escape from Bor’ by Frank Odwesso, ‘Lost Generation’ by Ali Ngethi and ‘My South Sudan’ by Robert Lutta, and a series of photographs by Odwesso and Ngethi, the NairobiDocuFest uses both documentary film and photo reportage to chronicle significant events in the story of South Sudan.

Photo Exhibition: Peregrinate, Sept. 8 – 30 2016 @ Goethe Institut

Peregrinate Exhibition
Opening: September 8, 2016
Venue: Goethe Institut Auditorium
Time: 7 pm
Entry: Free

Until: September 30, 2016

Photo Exhibition by: South Africans Thabiso Sekgala and Musa Nxumalo, and Kenyan Mimi Cherono Ng’ok.

About
Traversing Soweto streets, backyards in Nairobi, dusty Jordanian alleys, Peregrinate invites viewers to consider the intimate politics of home and belonging, as well as the possibilities inherent in dislocation, or a lack of anchoring, and the routes one takes to find a way. Sub-titled ‘field notes on time travel and space’, the exhibition examines notions of spatial politics, the economics of time and travel, and the kinds of access granted to travellers.

The travels of three different wanderers are juxtaposed as temporal sculptures to chronicle the personal experience of journeying within the home, neighbourhood and country, as well as the act of departing for distant places.

Peregrinate features the work of three photographers: South Africans Thabiso Sekgala and Musa Nxumalo, and Kenyan Mimi Cherono Ng’ok. The exhibition explores the concept of photography as a common method of investigation, discovery and representation – an act of wandering undertaken by the photographer as traveller and explorer. Jointly curated by the featured photographers, this exhibition is the final stage for the three participants as part of the Goethe-Institut portfolio workshop, the Photographer’s Master Class.

The evening will be musically accompanied by Monroe Marcus, who will be playing a DJ set.

Admission is free.

Online Exhibition: People Change by Nuru Bahati, Sept. 4 – Oct. 10 2016 @ Online

0000
Opening: September 4, 2016
Venue: Online

Until: October 17, 2016

About
Nuru Bahati Shukrani’s fine hands introduces to the world a man whose heart is a child. His unswerving dedication and wit construct surreal imagery that evokes emotions in people. In this phenomenal collection he has managed to reflect a diverse range of artistic pursuits engineered to bring one’s brain to task.
Each of us sees the world differently. And often, what’s in your mind is what you see first. Our connection to the earthliness of being human by nature fetches our emotional nuclei to one root; love. Hence Nuru Bahati’s perceptive stab.
Scheduled for release on 4th September, his 33rd birthday, PEOPLE CHANGE, is an online exhibition surpassing present times while traversing the past to today. It’s work of art that offers personal interpretation, creativity and intuitive experience.
A world constantly battling the consequences of poor human decisions needs people with knack and skill to help it heal.That highly depends on our consciousness; the power and will to hearken to the intricate motion of events, of ourselves, of nature and energy. It is only by seeing beyond physical orientation can we renew mind and spirit – to comprehend what lies within.
Sail in thought through this striking assortment. The artist insists he did not name the pieces so as not to limit anyone’s imagination. Thank God for the freedom, because it gives you a chance to interact with his material from an untailored point of view. Whatever you interpret could mean somethingthat awakes you. You are encouraged to free yourself through this.
Natively from Mombasa and practising his craft in Nairobi, Kenya, Nuru hopes to help each person converse inwardly withself at the meeting of PEOPLE CHANGE. The title was inspired by the strangeness and mystery of humanity. Indeed what we have made of this world astounds.
