LAFF 2016

Post by HEPZIBAH »

The Luxor African Film Festival is due to start this week. This is a link to the programme schedule (hope it works as it's in pdf format).

There will be a few recognisable faces from the film industry around Luxor during this time for those who enjoy the ancient art of 'actor spotting'.

I've looked at some of the titles and synopsis and would love to be able to see some of these films. In the UK we are getting a few more foreign language TV series so perhaps one day we will get some African films.

You mean like Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, or Jasin Statham?

I saw a movie on TV, may have been Nigerian, but it was on another African channel on Nilesat. The bit of it I saw featured a white foreign woman who had married some African guy living in a mud house in a village and she was putting poison in the food!

Having ended up in an African mud hut.....probably fleeced of her last penny.....she may have been planning to eat the food herself and put an end to her miserable life!

Hmm... thankfully not all films are the same!
