Special session with Inês Ponte presenting the documentary film MAKING A LIVING IN THE DRY SEASON (angola, reino unido, portugal, 2016, 35 min), at MYSPACE LOUNGE, in a session of open air cinema in Luanda.

Organised with João Ana and Margarida Silva.

Making a Living in the Dry Season is a documentary produced in the context of a PhD research in Social Anthropology with Visual Media, at the University of Manchester. Taking advantage of all stages of the film production as a research method, the final film portrays the development of a double notion of labour in a highland village in Southern Angola and during the dry season: the usual making a living and the exceptional making of a doll, at the filmmaker’s request.

Spoken in Olunyaneka, the film will be screened with Portuguese Subtitles. The Press Kit can be found here
