10th Lusophone Film Festival: Homage to Manoel de Oliveira, May 30 2015 @ Goethe Institut

Lusophone Film Fest Nairobi - May POSTER
Date: May 30, 2015
Venue: Goethe Institut
Time: from 5 pm
Entry: Free

The tenth edition of the Lusophone Film Fest of Nairobi will be on the 30-May as of 5pm at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi. This session will pay homage to Manoel de Oliveira, the oldest film director in the World that died last month at 106 years-old and was still directing several films every year. We will show his first film from 1931, and one of his latest, along with two other shorts:

– I’m From Over There (Brazil, 2014, Sansara Buriti)
– I’ll See You When You Get There (Guinea-Bissau, 2005, Filipe Henriques)
– Labor on the Douro River (Portugal, 1931, Manoel de Oliveira)
– Blind Man’s Buff (Portugal, 1994, Manoel de Oliveira)

Recognised with international awards at film festivals around the globe, the cinema from the Portuguese-speaking world is still mostly unknown to the general public. This 240 million people linguistic community is a thriving one, promoting over 80 film festivals and cinema awards every year, with movies mostly consumed in the respective countries.

The Lusophone Film Fest is a showcase of the diversity of film production in the eight Portuguese-speaking countries spread across 4 continents. The festival presents multiple works (documentaries, animations, shorts and feature films), in sessions of several films from the different countries.

Performances & DJ Sets W/ Schlachthofbronx ft. Alai K, DJ Tendwa & Just a Band, May 19 2015 @ Tree House Club

Date: May 19, 2015
Venue: Tree House Club
Time: 9 pm
Tickets: KES 500

Schlachthofbronx is a DJ duo from Munich/Germany who produces and plays innovative multi genre club music. Besides being known as on point performers on club and festival stages, the guys also built their reputation with production and studio work with and for artists like Snoop Dogg, M.I.A., Major Lazer, Buraka Som Sistema, Bonde Do Role, and others. In the club they deliver a fast paced, eclectic mix of styles and genres, reflecting their various influences reaching from Dancehall/Reggae and Hip Hop over Booty Bass to Techno, Cumbia and UK Bass – amongst others.

Their new ten-track release titled Rave And Romance directly represents the diversity of their unique sound between rump shaking slow jams and bass-heavy rave tunes. Fellow ravers and romantics Nicky Da B, Warrior Queen, Bonde Do Role and candelilla got recruited for the release and added the shouts as well as the dirty talk. These guys play clubs, festivals, museums, tents, boats, floats, busses, strip joints and beer tents – it doesn’t matter where, Schlachthofbronx always starts a party. With their Rave And Romance formula – and their bag of custom made tracks and exclusives – Schlachthofbronx will continue to put happy and sweaty smiles upon peoples’ faces.

Supporting acts from Nairobi will be DJ Tendwa, Alai K and Just A Band. This event takes place in the context of the German Week 2015.
