Set In The City: Depicting Urban Africa

with David Adjaye, Tosh Gitonga, Philippe Lacôte

Contemporary life in Africa is greatly defined by the rapidly evolving urbanism. Emerging filmmakers present their latest work, in which megacities play a decisive role, ranging from Kenyan filmmaker Tosh Gitonga (NAIROBI HALF LIFE) to French-Ivorian filmmaker Philippe Lacôte, currently working on a project for the new short film series "African Metropolis". They are joined by acclaimed architect David Adjaye, whose work is significantly influencing Africa’s urban landscape, to discuss how to integrate city images in a filmic language, treating the city as one of the story’s characters.
