MATATU FILM FESTIVAL (September 23-26, 2015)
In East African nations, matatu (Swahili) are privately owned minibuses or easily accessible share taxis. Often decorated with popular icons and sounds, matatu offer not only a means of travel, but access to another world. We are impassioned by the belief that everyone has a spectacular story regardless of age, geographical bounds, sexual preference, race, and socio-economic status and that story represents the sacred agreement among otherwise disparate communities.
We invite you to come aboard the Matatu Film Festival, September 23-26, exploring some of the world’s most spectacular stories in some of Oakland’s newest spaces.
