about cinema politica Mombasa

Mombasa is a coastal city in Kenya with a rich history, yet at the same time, a fascinating and commercial cosmopolitan. It is our objective with Cinema Politica to offer a free space for film and conversation that bridges the gap between theory, practice, and representation.

The films we screen span larger issues of social justice, peace, political theory, environmentalism, technology, innovative art pieces, and so on. In an attempt to supplement and localize the messages persented in the films, we invite relevant individuals and organizations to lead discussions at our events. We believe that this local event will provide a space for the transformative power of film to meet with the voices of our community, inspiring not only ideas but action.

Screenings will be held monthly at the Swahilipot Hub or the nearby Amphitheatre overlooking the ocean -- specific dates and times will be posted closer to the event dates. Donations are gratefully accepted to help cover our printing, postage, and other costs.
