Cine África Ferrol continues a new and different cultural commitment that aims to bring the African reality closer to as many audiences as possible, relying on the quality and the recognition of the scheduled showings, with films and documentaries told by their own protagonists (African people), using film as a tool and a window to distribute their culture and everyday life.

This second Cinenómada film road show in Galicia, with free admission until capacity is reached, will take place in Ferrol on the 17th and 18th of February at the Caixa Galicia Foundation´s headquarters.

On Thursday the 17th, the commissioner of the show, Xosé Cuns, will inaugurate the film season at 20:00, and at about 20:20 the first film will be shown: The Wooden Camera, by Ntshavheni Wa Luruli (France/South Africa/United Kingdom, 2003). The following day, there will be a showing at the same time of La robe du temps, by Malam Saguirou (Niger/France, 2008), a documentary that takes place in Zinder, the second most important city in Niger. Lastly, the director Sergi Agustí will present his documentary titled One Goal, which introduces viewers to the road to peace that a group of young amputees from Sierra Leone began years ago.

Casa África sponsors Cinenómada because it has the same objective as Al-Tarab of making African cinema visible to as many Spanish audiences as possible and of brining Africa closer to Spain.

Cinenómada makes available to various entities a large selection of films from past editions of the FCAT, subtitled in Spanish, which is to date the only offering of this dimension and genre that exists in Spain and that guarantees African producers an income, which although modest, is often the only one they receive.

It targets associations, municipalities, regional governments, universities, cultural centres, film libraries, museums and any type of organisation or institution that is interested in promoting African cinema. Cinenómada distributes films throughout the year that would otherwise remain only in specialised festivals.
