EU Film Festival Screening: I Am Not a Witch, May 11 2018 @ National Museum of Kenya

Date: May 11, 2018
Venue: Louis Leakey Auditorium, National Museum of Kenya
Time: 5 – 7 pm
Entry: Free (Get your free ticket on mtickets here.)

Join us on 11 May for the screening of the ground breaking feature film I Am Not a Witch by Zambian-born Welsh writer director Rungano Nyoni.

When eight-year-old Shula turns up alone and unannounced in a rural Zambian village, the locals are suspicious. A minor incident escalates to a full-blown witch trial, where she is found guilty and sentenced to life on a state-run witch camp. There, she is tethered to a long white ribbon and told that if she ever tries to run away, she will be transformed into a goat. As the days pass, Shula begins to settle into her new community, but a threat looms on the horizon. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision – whether to resign herself to life on the camp, or take a risk for freedom.

Dates: November 11-12, 2017

The Italian Cultural Institute of Nairobi, in collaboration with the National Museums of Kenya and with the support of the Embassy of Italy, launched in 2016 two projects in the field of Archeology, with the aim of engaging Italian excellence in Archeology and Cultural Heritage Management, to preserve and enhance Kenya’s historical and cultural heritage, as part of the actions to promote the development of sustainable tourism and in collaboration with the competent Kenyan Institutions.

In the first phase of project implementation – January and March 2016 – surveys were made in the areas concerned, and in particular:

a. Turkana Region / Rocky Paintings: Surveys at the sites of Loiyangalani (southwest) and Lokori (along the Kerio River) coordinated by Prof. Savino Di Lernia (University of Rome-La Sapienza) carried out in collaboration with the National Museum of Kenya;

b. Malindi / Mombasa Coast: Terrestrial Survey of Prof. Sebastiano Tusa, in collaboration with the National Museum of Malindi, in the areas facing the most significant underwater archaeological sites, in order to identify the possible location of a future marine archaeological park.
