The Africa in Motion Film Festival, in collaboration with FoSP and the Edinburgh University Global Health Academy, presents three films from Ghana, Senegal and Cameroon - plus one native Scottish short - linked by the theme of our friend death.
In only his third film in a quartercentury, Ampaw does his bit to pass on death and funeral traditions to the next generation and explores the colour and acceptance of social ritual - all with a touch of absurdity and farce.
Friday August 10, 5:45pm, at the Filmhouse. Tickets and more information available here.
Sembene uses creative imagination and the power of cinema to bring to life a story of mistaken identity and religious tension, a detective thriller with deeply rooted political themes.
Saturday 11 August, 8:30pm, at the Filmhouse. Tickets and more information are available here.
Commissioned by the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care and Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief.

Sunday August 12, 5:45pm, at the Filmhouse. Tickets and more information are available here.
