10.02.2013 - Philippe Lacôte, moderated by Nisha Naidoo
Contemporary life in Africa is greatly defined by the rapidly evolving urbanism. Emerging filmmakers present their latest work, in which megacities play a decisive role, ranging from Kenyan filmmaker Tosh Gitonga (Nairobi Half Life) to French-Ivorian filmmaker Philippe Lacôte, currently working on a project for the new short film series “African Metropolis“. They will discuss how they integrate city images in a filmic language, treating the city as one of the story’s characters.
