LUSALA @ THE MONTREAL INTERNATIONAL BLACK FILM FESTIVAL

After the successful Toronto screening of Mugambi Nthiga’s Kenyan-German drama 'Lusala' at the Toronto Black Film Festival in early 2020, audiences across Canada now have the chance to catch the moving drama at the digital Montreal International Black Film Festival. The film is the latest in the Cologne-based One Fine Day film series of African films mentored and facilitated by filmmaker Tom Tykwer ('Run Lola Run', 'Babylon Berlin').

'Lusala' (Germany, 2019, 65 min), directed by Mugambi Nthiga (co-writer Kati Kati, Supa Modo), with Brian Ogola (18 Hours, Poacher), Stycie Waweru (Supa Modo), Alan Oyugi, and others. Language: with English subtitles

Films can be watched across Canada from September 23-October 4 by purchasing the festival’s all-access pass.
