On the 28th November 2017, the British Council Kenya are hosting a free screening of Shola Amoo’s British award-winning multimedia feature film “A Moving Image” at Alliance Francaise in Nairobi at 7:30 pm.
A Moving Image is a multimedia feature film about gentrification in Brixton, London, incorporating fiction, documentary and performance art.
The film follows Nina, a young, stifled artist, as she returns to her community after a long absence. Upon her return, she is soon painted as a symbol of gentrification. As she struggles with her own complicity, we follow her mission to create a piece of art that can bring her community together, while on her journey she speaks to real people affected by gentrification in Brixton, blurring the line between reality and fiction.
After the screening, Shola Amoo will be in a curated conversation discussing his portrayal of the role of the artist in the community and themes from the film.
