Screening: 14th Lusophone Film Festival, Jan. 9 2016 @ Goethe Institut Auditorium

14th Lusophone Film Fest POSTER tosh
The 14th edition of the Lusophone Film Fest Nairobi will be on the 9-Jan at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi. This session will mark two years of the Film Fest with a selection of the best shorts we’ve had so far.

We will also have a talk with Bernardo Nascimento (director of North Atlantic) and Tosh Gitonga (director of Nairobi Half Life) for a lively discussion after the session! This edition will feature a number of shorts, lasting for about 2 hours:

– A Tropical Sunday (Mozambique)
– 3×3 (Portugal)
– Animalz (Portugal)
– Relic (Brazil)
– The Suspect (Portugal)
– The Ball (Mozambique)
– Isle of Flowers (Brazil)
– Alambamento (Angola)
– Rafa (Portugal)
– North Atlantic (Portugal)

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 event is free of charge. More info in https://www.facebook.com/Lusophonefilmfest

Event: Bridging the Gap – Analogue Elders Vs Digital Natives, Apr. 11 2015 @ Goethe Institut Auditorium

the Gap
Date: April 11, 2015
Venue: Goethe Institut Auditorium
Time: 6 pm
Entrance: Free (for the Discussion)
Party thereafter: KES 500

About
What constitutes an artistic identity, and how has that concept changed for Kenyan musicians over the years? In a recent interview with Music In Africa, Tabu Osusa of Ketebul Music suggested the only way young musicians will secure a distinctive identity is by embracing traditional music.

Santuri East Africa and Ketebul Music will present a day of activities investigating this claim, and seeking solutions to questions of identity, tradition, innovation – and the role of technology in music production. The event will combine a co-creation session between older artists from Kenya’s rich history of musical past, curated by Ketebul, with younger musicians, producers and DJs representing the digital age from the Santuri network. Following this, a panel discussion will take place at Goethe-Institut’s Auditorium, investigating the results for the co-creation workshop, as well as inviting noted guest speakers from the music industry, media, and cultural curators.

Finally, the space will evolve into a party that will incorporate the past, present and future of Kenyan music, presenting live performances and DJ sets from a diverse selection of artists.
