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.

Ceramics Exhibition: Space of Soil by Prof. Kim Sung-Ji, Jun. 6-13 2017 @ Alliance Française

Space of Soil by Prof. Kim Sung-Ji


Dates: June 6 – 13, 2017
Venue: Alliance Française

About
Professor Kim, Sung-Jin is a master ceramist from South Korea. He has been a Visiting Professor at the Kenyatta University’s Department of Art and Design for a year.

In this his farewell exhibition in Nairobi, Professor Kim will be showing his wheel-thrown open-work (tou gak) pottery inspired from traditional Korean pottery culture and African art, in a symbolic gesture of friendship between Kenyans and South Koreans.

The open-work technique produces intricate patterns of holes and is a prominent decorative skill in the aesthetics of Korean ceramic art.

This age-old technique carries infinite potential for modern design.

The title of the exhibition ‘Space of Soil’ refers to the porous nature of soil that breathes life into the molded shape giving ceramists the surface space to express their craftsmanship and create their work of art.

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.
