THE MANNENBERG, NEXT WEEK
WED 14, 6pm, Free Film Screening: “VIVA RIVA” - (Strictly No Under 18)
Kinshasa is a city of silky smooth and pulsating nightlife ... The happy few who have it all live the high life, but Riva is one of those dreamers who had nothing, until he returned after 10 years with pockets full of cash, determined to have the time of his life. The money belongs to his old boss who wreaks bloody havoc through town to find Riva, and the dream becomes a nightmare as Riva’s glory time runs out in a sordid pit on the edge of town. - “Finally! An African feature film that merges the pleasures of Nollywood with sleek camerawork, satisfying genre thrills and a rare look inside the very heart of the continent. “Viva Riva!“ is unprecedented” (indieWire); “A blast from start to finish” (Variety). Courtesy of the Zimbabwe International Film Festival.
