Human Rights Watch Nairobi Film Festival: NairobiNow’s Editors Pick, Nov. 18-22 2013 @ Alliance

HRW 2013
The Human Rights watch presents an excellent array of flicks for this year’s Nairobi HRW film festival. Below is NairobiNow’s Editors Pick which should make interesting viewing;

Tuesday’s 6.30 pm: Fatal Assistance by Raoul Peck
Official selection Berlin Film Festival 2013

Award-winning Haitian born filmmaker Raoul Peck takes us on a two year journey inside the challenging, contradictory, and colossal rebuilding efforts in post-earthquake Haiti. Through its provocative and radical point of view, Fatal Assistance offers a devastating indictment of the international community’s post-disaster idealism.

Discussants: Mohamed Khaled, an expert on working in humanitarian emergencies, and others TBA.

Thursday’s 6.30pm: The Act of Killing by Joshua Oppenheimer
Official selection 2012 Toronto International Film Festival & Winner of 2013 Berlin Film Festival Panorama Audience Award – documentary film

The film encapsulates years of Indonesian genocide, suffering, and repression into the story of one its most lethal and efficient killers, Anwar Congo. In 1965, when the Indonesian government was overthrown by the military, Anwar and his cohorts were promoted from small-time gangsters who sold movie-theater tickets on the black market to death-squad leaders. Anwar’s gang helped the army kill more than one million alleged Communists, ethnic Chinese, and intellectuals in less than a year.

Discussant: Alice Nderitu, board member at Independent Medico-Legal Unit (IMLU).

Friday’s 6.30 pm: The Occupy Wall Street Collaborative Film by Audrey Ewell, Aaron Aites, Lucian Read, Nina Krstic

In September 2011, the Occupy Wall Street movement propelled issues of economic inequality into the spotlight. 99% – The Occupy Wall Street Collaborative Film goes behind the scenes of the movement, revealing what happened and why. Personal stories imbue analysis of big picture issues with the real-world struggles of those compelled to take action, speak up, march, and risk arrest.

Discussants: Boniface Mwangi, award-winning photographer and Team Leader at PAWA 254, and Dinah Awuor, Bunge la Mwananchi.
