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.

The mission of the NY Portuguese Short Film Festival is to bring Portuguese culture to the big screen and showcase films with a unique Portuguese perspective. The NYPSFF offers a contemporary Portugal full of ideas and spirit while bridging audiences with different cultural background.

Photo Exhibition: Peregrinate, Sept. 8 – 30 2016 @ Goethe Institut

Peregrinate Exhibition
Opening: September 8, 2016
Venue: Goethe Institut Auditorium
Time: 7 pm
Entry: Free

Until: September 30, 2016

Photo Exhibition by: South Africans Thabiso Sekgala and Musa Nxumalo, and Kenyan Mimi Cherono Ng’ok.

About
Traversing Soweto streets, backyards in Nairobi, dusty Jordanian alleys, Peregrinate invites viewers to consider the intimate politics of home and belonging, as well as the possibilities inherent in dislocation, or a lack of anchoring, and the routes one takes to find a way. Sub-titled ‘field notes on time travel and space’, the exhibition examines notions of spatial politics, the economics of time and travel, and the kinds of access granted to travellers.

The travels of three different wanderers are juxtaposed as temporal sculptures to chronicle the personal experience of journeying within the home, neighbourhood and country, as well as the act of departing for distant places.

Peregrinate features the work of three photographers: South Africans Thabiso Sekgala and Musa Nxumalo, and Kenyan Mimi Cherono Ng’ok. The exhibition explores the concept of photography as a common method of investigation, discovery and representation – an act of wandering undertaken by the photographer as traveller and explorer. Jointly curated by the featured photographers, this exhibition is the final stage for the three participants as part of the Goethe-Institut portfolio workshop, the Photographer’s Master Class.

The evening will be musically accompanied by Monroe Marcus, who will be playing a DJ set.

Admission is free.

Nairobi Performance Series – June Edition, Jun. 18 2016 @ Goethe Institut Nairobi

Date: June 18, 2016
Venue: Goethe Institut Auditorium, Nairobi
Time: 6 pm
Entry: Free

About
The Nairobi Performance Series is a co-production platform that aims to support new productions with a cross-disciplinary working approach. This approach will be enhanced this year by ways of dedicating every edition to specific genre. Therefore the June edition will feature choreographers and photo-/videographers. The series will be held 3 times a year, each edition producing new works, which is inspired by intensive processes initiated by cross-genre meetings.

The series provides an opportunity for performers, choreographers and creators to develop ideas, build on their skills and collective experiences to find new working models/approaches.

The selected work to be performed is called Mindscapes and was developed by Adam Chienjo, Dina Abok, Lenny Njagih and Melisa Allela.

Admission is free!
