Film Festival

The Amakula Kampala International Film Festival starts tonight. It’s possible that I will watch four movies tomorrow (and call it research for my novel). I’d watch more but I have a lunch date. The festival offers a nice mix of contemporary African films and older films from the rest of the world, many of them with an African theme.

The films will be shown in the National Theater, which I’ve been meaning to check out. Best of all, everything’s free.

Friday’s line-up: Michael Winterbottom’s In This World, Catch a Fire with Tim Robbins, United 93, and the late-night special Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which—shockingly—I have never seen.

I tried to plan out the rest of the weekend, but there’s just too much to choose from! I have to take it day-by-day.

Plus, the paint might actually be dry in the second apartment on Saturday. Ha.
