Event Description

One day, air conditioners in the Angolan capital Luanda start to mysteriously fall from the buildings. When security guard Matacedo is told to get his overheating boss an airco unit before the end of the day, he starts a mission that among other things brings him into contact with the eccentric owner of an electronics store. His search is the starting point for a pleasantly free film about the heartbeat of this city: the buildings in Luanda which visibly bear its history, and the people trying to rebuild their lives after the civil war. Music and sound guide us through the city: we hear a jazzy soundtrack, a socially critical rap, the chaotic hum of the city and surreal, distorted sounds.

After the screening, as always, all are welcome to join us for dinner, wine, and to discuss the movie.
