Screening: Italian Participation to the European Film Festival 2018 – “Perfetti Sconosciuti” (Perfect Strangers), May 24 2018 @ the Alchemist – Westlands

The Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute are participating to the European Film Festival 2018, taking place from the 4th to the 27th May 2018 in Nairobi.

The Institute will be screening the Italian movie “Perfetti Sconosciuti” (Perfect Strangers), a brilliant and fresh picture of the contemporary society directed by Paolo Genovese and produced in 2016:

Seven long-time friends (three married couples and a divorcee) are having a dinner. They decide, as a playful game, to put each one’s mobile phone on the table and reveal every text message or phone call they would receive that evening, to prove that nobody has anything to hide. Hilarity and drama ensue together as everyone’s secrets are unveiled and the seven friends find themselves perfect strangers to each other..

Language: Italian with English subtitles
Length: 97 minutes

The movie will be screened on Thursday 24 May 2018, 9.00 pm. at The Alchemist.

EU Film Festival Screening: I Am Not a Witch, May 11 2018 @ National Museum of Kenya

Date: May 11, 2018
Venue: Louis Leakey Auditorium, National Museum of Kenya
Time: 5 – 7 pm
Entry: Free (Get your free ticket on mtickets here.)

Join us on 11 May for the screening of the ground breaking feature film I Am Not a Witch by Zambian-born Welsh writer director Rungano Nyoni.

When eight-year-old Shula turns up alone and unannounced in a rural Zambian village, the locals are suspicious. A minor incident escalates to a full-blown witch trial, where she is found guilty and sentenced to life on a state-run witch camp. There, she is tethered to a long white ribbon and told that if she ever tries to run away, she will be transformed into a goat. As the days pass, Shula begins to settle into her new community, but a threat looms on the horizon. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision – whether to resign herself to life on the camp, or take a risk for freedom.
