Screening: A Moving Image in the Presence of Director Shola Amoo, Nov. 28 2017 @ Alliance Française

Date: November 28, 2017
Venue: Alliance Française
Time: 7.30 pm
Entry: Free

You are cordially invited to the screening of the British award-winning multimedia feature film A Moving Image on 28th November 2017 at Alliance Française, Nairobi at 7:30 pm.

In this film, we follow Nina, a young stifled artist, as she returns to her community after a long absence – she is soon painted as a symbol of gentrification.

As she struggles with her own complicity, we follow her mission to create a piece of art that can bring her community together. On her journey we speak to real people affected by gentrification in Brixton, blurring the line between reality and fiction.

After the screening, Writer/ Director Shola Amoo will be in a curated conversation discussing his portrayal of the role of the artist in the community and themes from the film.

Entry is free on registration here.

Screening: The Longest Race (in the Presence of the Director, Javier Triana), Aug. 28 2017 @ Alliance Française

Join one of the film’s director, Javier Triana, at Alliance Française for a public screening of 01:05:12 The Longest Race for the first time in Nairobi.

Date: Monday, August 28, 2017
Venue: Alliance Française
Time: 6 pm
Entry: Free

The victories of hundreds of Kenyan and Ethiopian female athletes are transforming the socio-economic landscape in two traditionally macho countries, one stride at a time. On this marathon to gender equality, roles are being reversed – men take care of the house and women earn the income.

Join one of the film’s director, Javier Triana, on Monday, 28th August at Alliance Française for a public screening of 01:05:12 The Longest Race for the first time in Nairobi.

The film explores how women in Kenya’s Iten, home to many of the best long distance runners in the world, are changing the socioeconomic landscape in their region through athletics. Traditional roles are reversing thanks to the sport of running. Social shifts are being seen at home as an increasing number of men are taking care of the children and cooking to allow their wives the much needed time to train and to rest, in order to perform well at the races and hopefully, bring home prize money.

The story shows how women in the region have been gaining confidence thanks to their victories, be it from the way they dress to the way they invest their money – something they can now decide for themselves.
