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
