Event Details

After a month off to relax, the sixth session of the Lusophone Film Fest of Nairobi will be back on the 13-September at the Goethe Institute, in a medley of all the film types we had so far, shorts, a documentary, and an animation! The session will feature:
- Relic, Renata Diniz (Brazil, 2013, 16 min)
- Triangle, Fernanda Polacow, Juliana Borges, Mário Bastos, Filipa Reis, João Miller Guerra (Angola/Portugal/Brazil, 2013, 101 min)

- The Boy and the World, Alê Abreu (Brazil, 2013, 80 min)

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. For six months the festival will present multiple works (documentaries, animations, shorts and feature films), in monthly sessions of several films from different countries.

The event is free of charge. More information about the Lusophone Film Fest of Nairobi in https://www.facebook.com/Lusophonefilmfest
