Cosford Screening: ‘Viva Riva!’

9:00 pm
2:00 pm
2:30 pm

Riva is a small-time operator who after a decade away has just returned to his hometown of Kinshasa, Congo, with a major score: a fortune in hijacked gasoline. Wads of cash in hand and out for a good time, Riva is soon entranced by beautiful nightclub denizen Nora, the kept woman of a local gangster. Into the mix comes an Angolan crime lord relentlessly seeking the return of his stolen shipment of gasoline. Director Djo Tunda Wa Munga’s Kinshasa is a seductively vibrant, lawless, fuel-starved sprawl of shantytowns, gated villas, bordellos, and nightclubs, and Riva is its perfect embodiment. Winner of the 2011 MTV Movie Award for Best African Film and winner of six African Movie Academy Awards including Best Film. In French and Lingala with English subtitles. This film will screen Friday, July 22 at 9 p.m.; Saturday, July 23 at 2, 6, and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, July 24 at 2:30, 4:30, and 8:30 p.m. Admission is $7 for seniors and University of Miami alumni, faculty, non-UM students, and staff. General admission is $9. Free for UM students. To purchase tickets online, or for more information, visit or call 305-284-4861.
