European Film Festival in Kenya

15 May 2018

Mel’s Lament will be showing in Kenya this month as part of the 27th European Film Festival in Kenya.

According to the festival curator, Nyambura M. Waruingi, “The European Film Festival brings European cinema to a broad range of audiences in Kenya. This is a great opportunity for Kenyans to experience another Europe that they don’t often get to see.”

In addition to NT’s Mel’s Lament, the screening programme will include short films by the artists Beverley Bennett, Phoebe Boswell and Jay Bernard.

“This is not a show ‘about’ a coherent movement [but] instead presents works by British African diaspora artists outside of the usual [tired] framing”. So say the curators Paul Goodwin and Hansi Momodu-Gordon of their show UNTITLED: art on the conditions of our time, a major new touring exhibition produced in conjunction with New Art Exchange [NAE] which includes works by NT, and aims to show a “progressive stance on exhibition making.”

Artists include: Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Barby Asante, Appau Junior Boakye-Yiadom, Phoebe Boswell, Kimathi Donkor, Evan Ifekoya, Cedar Lewisohn, Harold Offeh, Ima-Abasi Okon, Barbara Walker
