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. Cinema Club is 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, exploring some of the world's most spectacular stories in some of Oakland's newest spaces. Enjoy the ride.
