About
The eleventh edition of the Lusophone Film Fest of Nairobi will be on the 4-July as of 5pm at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi. We will have a short, an animation, and the first feature film to come out of Timor-Leste (East Timor), one of the newest countries in the World. we’ll showcase:

– Eyes of the lighthouse (Portugal, 2010, Pedro Serrazina)
In a rocky island exposed to the elements, a lighthouse keeper lives alone with his daughter. With no other company, the girl develops a unique complicity with the sea, which brings her toys to the shore. Following the rhythm of the waves, these objects will unveil previous events, memories that the tide cannot erase…

– Sandwich (Brazil, 2000, Jorge Furtado)
A Brazilian pantomime playing with the relation between reality and film by the same director of Isle of Flowers. A couple’s last moments, their meetings, separations and a sandwich

– Beatriz’s War (Timor-Leste, 2013, Luigi Acquisto/Bety Reis)
The first fiction film to come out of Timor-Leste (East Timor), one of the newest nations in the World. 16 years after Beatriz’s husband disappears during a brutal massacre by occupying forces, she is troubled by his mysterious return: is he the young man she had lost or is he an impostor?

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 film fest started in March 2014 in Nairobi and has since expanded to Zanzibar (Tanzania) and Bangkok (Thailand).

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

Contemporary Dance: Dance for Sale, Jun. 26 & 27 2015 @ Tom Mboya Square

Dance for Sale
Dates: June 26 & 27, 2015
Venue: Tom Mboya Square
Time: 3 pm
Admission: A matter of negotiation

Dance for Sale – interview from Grupo Oito on Vimeo.

About
Dance for Sale plays at the interstices between public and private spaces, between the logics of the state and that of the market. Where is dance located? Who decides what is to be shown? What stages does a piece have to go through before it gets to the public?

Dance for Sale researches dance as a product. The “business with art” is the focus of its choreography. Grupo Oito, a collective of independent artists that was founded by Ricardo de Paula in 2006, invites the audience to a dance market and leaves them in a space negotiating the price of art. The principle is simple: those who pay first, watch the performance. The rest stay outside and get another chance. Dance for Sale is a dance market! Like all good markets, it is always searching for new products. With the main goal to keep the products updated, Grupo Oito offers a platform where dancers from different backgrounds and cultures interact and exchange experiences and movement.

Grupo Oito’s dancers Laura Alonso, Caroline Alves, Zé de Paiva, Ricardo de Paula, Natalie Riedelsheimer, and Miro Wallner will give a workshop and develop the show together with several Kenyan dancers.

An event in cooperation with Kultursprünge at Ballhaus Naunynstraße gemeinnützige GmbH.
