I am in Cannes for two weeks as part of a project by CFI together with other six bloggers from Madagascar, Togo, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon and Georgia to write on the film festival.
So far I have written on the films from the African continent that feature in this year’s official selection and yesterday i had a brief interview with the MD of Nigeria Film Corporation talking about Nollywood.
Today I did take time to learn about Brazilian cinema. For more on the project you can read my articles and those of other bloggers in French and English on Cannesvupar . Besides work, I spend time trying get to say my Malagasy roomate’s name Lalatiana Rahariniaina!! Check out her blog .
