In keeping with the feel of Africa Climate Week and the Summit currently in Nairobi, The Climate Story Lab Africa has from Monday, September 4, been hosting ‘Cinema Tao’, an outdoor free public screening that showcases powerful and compelling climate films from Africa and he Global South.
The screenings have been taking place daily from 6pm to 9pm, right outside the Hilton Hotel, conveniently located opposite Kencom and will run until Friday, September 8.
Over the five consecutive days, Cinema Tao has been presenting a selection of exceptional award-winning climate films, meticulously curated in collaboration with partners, including DocuBox East Africa Film Fund, Kenya Film Commission, Talanta Hela, Tunga Afrika, Ground Volume, and Doc Society.
The film lineup includes the premiere of ‘Between the Rains’ by Moses Thuranira and Andrew Harrison Brown, alongside a host of other movies by Kenyans such as ‘River of Brown Waters’ by Laissa Malih, ‘If Turtles Could Talk’ by Juma Adero and ‘Thank You for Rain’ by Kisilu Musya and Julia Dahr.
Other films include ‘The Territory’ by Brazil’s Alex Pritz, ‘Delikado’ by Karl Malakunas from Philippines, ‘New Boats’ by the Sierra Leonean Lansana Mansary, ‘Boube of the Fulani” by Félicien Asogba from Benin and ‘Ulwandle Lushile’ by South Africa’s Tembisa Jordaan (South Africa).
The goal of the public showcase is to enrich public understanding of climate change through powerful storytelling.
By merging scientific data with real-life narratives, we aim to drive discussions, inspire change, and encourage collective action for a climate-just future,”
