Screening: Black Diamonds (in the Presence of the New Spanish Ambassador), May 20 2017 @ Alliance Française


Date: May 20, 2017
Venue: Alliance Française Auditorium
Time: 5.30 pm
Entry: Free

Synopsis
The film “Black Diamonds” uncovers the mechanisms of the lucrative international trade of hundreds of young African players with their heads full of dreams who are ready for tremendous sacrifices to become the new football superstars.
They came to Europe from Africa at the age of 15 year old and the promise of becoming football stars. Amadou and Moussa, childhood friends, are captured in Mali by agents, separated from their families and trained in Madrid to triumph.
A trip through Spain, Portugal and northern Europe, teaches them firsthand the shadows of the so-called king sport, a business that stopped treating them like children to see them as ‘Black Diamonds’.

PS: The new Spanish Ambassador, H.E. Javier García de Viedma, will attend the screening.

‘A Million Things | Rouch 100’ with Pedro Pinto & Tiago Corria-Paulo

About
On the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Jean Rouch, universally-acclaimed French filmmaker, anthropologist and explorer, Pedro Silva Pinto and Tiago Corria-Paulo, Mozambican musicians, present a cine-concert around the cinematographic works of Jean Rouch, the force behind the cinéma-vérité movement of the 20th century.

The point of departure of this audio and visual experience is footage from Jean Rouch’s ethnographic films. It is complemented by a researched musical narration by the two musicians that draws the viewer into an all immersive experience. The ciné-concert is a tribute to the visual anthropology of Africa documented by this respected filmmaker over a period of 50 years.
