Special Screening of “An African Election” with Swiss Director Jarreth Merz

leave a comment »

The Paley Center for Media is proud to present a special screening of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival World Documentary official selection, An African Election (IMDB).

Thursday, April 21, 2011 7:00 pm

In a world plagued by stolen elections, secret government agendas, and a renewed interest in the exploitation of African natural resources, what value does democracy offer, particularly in the tumultuous region of West Africa? For Ghana, a nation that has been Africa’s barometer of political stability, democracy may mean the difference between peace and prosperity—and murderous chaos under military coup.

An African Election is a remarkable documentary that grants viewers unprecedented access to the anatomy of Ghana’s 2008 presidential elections. Capturing the intrigue of electioneering, the intensity of the vote-counting process, and the mood of the countrymen whose fate lies precariously in the balance, director Jarreth Merz’s coverage unfolds with all the tension of a political thriller, revealing the emotions, passions, and ethical decisions that both threaten—and maintain—the integrity of the democratic process. An African Election illuminates a beacon of hope for Africa and for the value and vitality of democracy today.

The screening will be followed by an after-party! Dance to the sounds of a live DJ spinning Africa themed music plus a live band while enjoying cocktails and appetizers.

Admission is free, but RSVPs are required. RSVP at paleycenter.org.

One last chance in LA: Must-See Swiss Film “Grounding: The Last Days of Swissair” followed by Q&A with lead Actor Gilles Tschudi

leave a comment »

The Cultural Foreign Policy Centre of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and the Consulate General of Switzerland in Los Angeles present: A week with Gilles Tschudi – Los Angeles, April 11-14, 2011.

The series, celebrating one of the most highly acclaimed Swiss Actors, includes two screenings of “ONE OF THE BIGGEST HITS IN SWISS FILM HISTORY!”

Grounding: The Last Days of Swissair (IMDB, official)

The demise of airline Swissair in 2001 was a huge blow to Switzerland’s economy and to the country’s morale. It was a sad day for Swiss history when the airline’s fleet was grounded on 2 October 2001. “Grounding” by Award-Winning Director Michael Steiner (IMDB, official), is set during the last days of the doomed airline, and tells the story of manager Mario A. Corti‘s unhappy fate, the last, unlucky CEO at the traditional airline company, as well as of all those nameless people who lost almost everything in the maelstrom of Swissair’s downfall: their job, home and their belief in Switzerland

Join us to see this Swiss Blockbuster and admire the amazing performance of Gilles Tschudi. There will be refreshments prior to the screening and a Q&A will follow afterward.

NO RSVPS NEEDED – Film will be shown in its original Swiss-German version, with English subtitles.
