Bikeminded Film Club - 3 November 2016
The Bikeminded Film Club is back for a fourth year! It will be held in the unique art-decó lecture theatre at the Kensington Central Library, a cosy venue to watch cycling-themed films during the autumn and winter. Did we mention that entrance is free?
The first screening will be Benda Bilili, a documentary film that follows a group of street musicians in the Democratic Republic of Congo and their trajectory to perform concerts in Europe. The core members of the band called Staff Blenda Belili are disabled due to poliomyelitis and move around in specially customized tricycles. They used to live around the grounds of the zoo in Kinshasa, the country’s capital. The name of the band and the film “Benda Bilili” means “look beyond appearances” in Lingala.
