Tales of the Accidental City by Maïmouna Jallow: Film Screening + Q&A
Join a lived streamed screening of Tales of the Accidental City, followed by a Q&A with its director and actress, Maïmouna Jallow.
Tales of the Accidental City is a 90-minute audio play in which four residents of Nairobi accused of various misdemeanors find themselves stuck together in a three-day anger management class. Diana, Jacinda, Louis Njoroge, and Sarah Obama must explain what got them there, and with the help of their quirky counsellor Rose, find a way to heal the wounds inflicted on them by life in the crazy city of Nairobi.
Through the characters, we are invited to explore Nairobi 120 years after its ‘creation’. Through this portrait of Nairobi, the play tells the story of many African cities challenged by population growth, economic disparities and social injustice.
This event will occur on 21st October 2021 at 16:00-18:30. Tickets are free and the event is suitable for those aged 16+.
