AfricAvenir hosts African film screenings in June


In June 2015 AfricAvenir screens a number of African films at the Goethe-Centre,
Hope Initiatives Southern Africa (HISA) Community Centre and Franco Namibian
Cultural Centre (FNCC) in Windhoek.

On Saturday, 27 June 2015 at 19h00, AfricAvenir and Spoken Word screens
Ghanaian documentary The Art of Ama Ata Aidoo, directed Yaba
Badoe. The screening, made possible through financial support of the Finnish
Embassy in Namibia, takes place at the Goethe-Centre in Windhoek. The film
celebrates an acclaimed Pan-African feminist, poet, playwright and novelist and
provides a fascinating insight into her life.

Namibian Spoken Word artists will perform/recite some of Ama Ata Aidoo’s work
before the screening of the movie. Tickets cost N$30.

On Friday 5 June, at 14h30 at the HISA Community Centre and on Saturday 6 June,
at 10h00 at the cinema of the FNCC, AfricAvenir in partnership with FNCC and HISA
screens South African short film KanyeKanye. The family film is a
modern day Romeo and Juliet story based in a small township where many years
ago, two best friends had a childish argument about which apple is better: the red
or the green. Directed by Miklas Manneke, Kanyekanye has won a
number of awards including Best Student Film Award at the South African Film and
Television Awards and the Best Children’s Film Award at the Uppsala International
Short Film Festival in Sweden.

On Wednesday 10 June 2015 at 18h30, AfricAvenir screens Angolan documentary

after the screening. The screening takes place at the FNCC and tickets are available
