Dear Sir

My name is Wale Ojo and I am responsible for the screening of KALUSHI at the British Film institute on the 6th April 2017.  I saw the film at the Film Africa festival in November last year  and was immediately struck by its potency and beauty. I immediately made  plans for the film to be featured at the premier venue for cinema in the country, namely the National Film theatre at the British Film institute. I am on a steering committee at the BFI called the AFRICAN ODYSSEYS and we are responsible for putting on films of educational content for an eager and demanding audience.

Please feel free to spread the word to all you know.  I have included a poster of the film and here is a booking link  Kalushi . Please note that booking for seats will be available from March 14th.

I look forward to seeing you on the 6th April for what promises to be a cinematic and landmark event.

Yours sincerely,

Wale Ojo

Peter Smith will attend the screening as one of the London Recruits.
