A cross-cultural exchange between representatives of art and politics in Berlin (Germany) and Windhoek (Namibia) will take place in October.
28 October 2010 is the day! The Berlin-Windhoek Film Night 2010 will take place at 8 pm in The Babylon Cinema in Berlin.
The opening film of the event is the film “Africa Light / Gray Zone” (2010) by Tino Schwanemann. “Africa Light / Gray Zone” tells the story of Namibia, “The Light of Africa”. It is representing the development of identity for an entire continent: Between tradition and modernity, between the cattle and slums, between colonialism and the ownership reforms to the minimum wage for everyone. Namibia is neither black nor white – but infinitely gray.
Additional highlights of The Film Night will be the film “City Code” by Tabea Sternberg, other films by German and African filmmakers, a poetry slam performance in Windhoek, live music, a photography exhibition and the official reception by the chairmen of The German Namibian Association.
The Film Night will be held by the German Namibian Association in co-operation with the German TV broadcaster ZDF and will be supported by the Senate of Berlin, the German Department of State and Air Berlin.
