Master class: How to film urban Africa today + Screening: Felicity
On Thurday 8th June at 4pm sharp at the Arts Theater, University of Ibadan, together with the INSTITUT FRANÇAIS and IFRA Nigeria, we will be delighted to show Félicité by Alain Gomis, in presence of the filmmaker, winner of the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival this year and two time winner of the Golden Stallion at the FESPACO.
Before the screening of Félicité at the Arts Theatre, the filmmaker Alain Gomis will address students about his work from 10 am to 12 pm at Draper's Hall, Institute of African Studies.
'Félicité, a strong and proud woman, sings in bars in Kinshasa. She drifts away from reality when her 14-year- old son gets into an accident. In electric Kinshasa, she wanders in a world of music & dreams... until love unexpectedly brings her back to life.'
