Film screening: The Happy Movie, Sept. 10 2015 @ PAWA 254

happy movieFor the next edition of #PAWAFilmForum, PAWA254 is proud to be partnering with the Amani Institute to screen Eiji Han Shimizu’s film ‘ The Happy Movie’. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the film maker.

Due to limited seating, kindly RSVP to the Event here:

Does money make you HAPPY? Kids and family? Your work? Do you live in a world that values and promotes happiness and well-being? Are we in the midst of a happiness revolution?

Roko Belic, director of the Academy Award® nominated “Genghis Blues” now brings us HAPPY, a film that sets out to answer these questions and more. Taking us from the bayous of Louisiana to the deserts of Namibia, from the beaches of Brazil to the villages of Okinawa, HAPPY explores the secrets behind our most valued emotion.

Amani Institute is developing next-generation talent to tackle global challenges by filling the gap between university and the workforce through a new approach to higher education.

A filmmaker and publisher from Japan, Eiji Han Shimizu, is the creator of a highly acclaimed manga series Biographic Novels, which is published in 9 languages and in over 20 countries. His TED talk about how his media projects are changing the world for the better is available on YouTube.

The Pawa254 Film Forum is committed to showcasing independently produced, often non- commercial work that has little opportunity of reaching the general public; highlighting social, political, cultural and historical realities. By featuring the voices and visions of truly independent media artists from Kenya and beyond, we aim to expose diverse audiences to a range of artistic expressions, cultural perspectives and critical inquiries.

Cut off My Tongue by Sitawa Namwalie Returns to Nairobi! Jul. 1-4 2015 @ Pawa 254 Hub

Cut Off My Tongue 2015
An award-winning and critically-acclaimed show about Kenyan identity & aspirations is back!

Dates: July 1-4, 2015
Venue: PAWA 254
Time: at 7.30pm
Ticket Kes 2000
For tickets you can call this number 0702-024848

One of the most sobering and positive things to happen in Kenya in 2008, soon after the post-election violence, was “Cut Off My Tongue”. At a time of great tension and uncertainty, this dramatized poetry show ranted, provoked, inspired and broke into song and dance as it explored the truths that shape us as Kenyans: our beliefs, the way we behave and why.

“Cut off My Tongue” deals with interrelated stories about life in Kenya grouped around tribe and ethnicity, political critique, identity, tradition and genealogy. Although the main focus of the show is Kenya, the themes addressed cut across post-colonial Africa and the continent’s struggle to deal with the question of “Nation-State”. It was performed by a multi-racial cast to sold-out audiences in Kenya, Uganda and the UK (Hampstead Theatre, London and the Hay Festival 2009). It is moving, entertaining, brave and frighteningly honest. It is politics – and love – that bites as it teases. If you are African in mind, body or spirit, you must see “Cut Off My Tongue”!

Also in the month of July this year, “Cut off My Tongue” will be performed at the Ubumuntu Arts Festival in Rwanda in memory of the 1994 genocide. Your support will get them there!
