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.
