CORA & TheLifeHouse Anchor Discussion @ Lights, Camera, Africa Film Festival, 2012

Posted by Samuel Osaze on September 20, 2012 at 10:45 AM


INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE at the-- LIGHTS, CAMERA, AFRICA 2012 FILM FESTIVAL, DAY 2.


You are invited to participate in a discussion on this year’s festival theme – "Shine Your Eye": Film as Eyewitness on Saturday 29th September between 3.30pm and 4.30pm. The venue of the discussion will be the Southern Sun Hotel in Ikoyi. Participants are kindly requested to arrive at 2.30pm



This hour-long moderated discussion to be anchored by Cora Art and Cultural Foundation & TheLifeHouse is targeted at film-makers, students of film and general film and culture enthusiasts. We anticipate that it will provide an opportunity for the discussants and the audience to interrogate the role of film in acting as a witness to historic events.


The films selected for this year’s festival illustrate the use of film as eyewitness and the citizen’s intervention in this regard. The experience of the discussants as film-makers and dynamic culture ambassadors in utilising film as a tool of witness would be useful as it would serve to broaden the perspectives of the audience.


Festival picks to look forward to include- " Our Beloved Sudan" by a female Director; Tagreed Elsanhouri, tells a tale of the two Sudans in the run up to independence celebration for South Sudan. Yoole describes the harsh ordeal undergone by young Senegales men who leave their homeland in search of better life. Closer to home, Akin Omotosho's "Man On Ground" which has been well received at global film festivals around the world, shall open the festival and, guests can look forward to a Q & A session with Omotosho himself.


To participate, send email to; info@lifehouselagos.com or by telephone to +234 703 403 0683 or +234 816 264 3836

Thank You.
