Medicus Mundi is an international network that in Spain is made up of 16 organisations that bring together a total of more than 8,000 people between members, volunteers and professionals. Founded in 1962, its work was recognised in 1991 with the Prince of Asturias Award for Concordance.

Specifically, the Medicus Mundi association in Castilla La Mancha has once again turned to Cinenómada in order to launch what will be the 6th African Film Season to be organised by the organisation. 

Casa África sponsors Cinenómada because it has the same objective as Al-Tarab of making African cinema visible to as many Spanish audiences as possible and of brining Africa closer to Spain.

Cinenómada makes available to various entities a large selection of films from past editions of the FCAT, subtitled in Spanish, which is to date the only offering of this dimension and genre that exists in Spain and that guarantees African producers an income, which although modest, is often the only one they receive.

It targets associations, municipalities, regional governments, universities, cultural centres, film libraries, museums and any type of organisation or institution that is interested in promoting African cinema. Cinenómada distributes films throughout the year that would otherwise remain only in specialised festivals.

The film season will consist of the following showings:

26 May 2011. Harragas, by Merzak Allouache. In it, the protagonists risk their lives in the Strait while trying to reach the Promised Land--Europe.

02 June 2011. Africa Paradis, by Sylvestre Amoussou. This film takes place in a hypothetical future in which Europeans are the ones who are formed to immigrate illegally to Africa in order to progress.

09 June 2011. Animation and short film session:

Paris sur mer, de Munir Abbar

C'est dimanche!, de Samir Guesmi

Waramutsého!, de Bernard Auguste y Kouemo Yanghu

A mãe dos netos, de Isabel Noronha y Vivan Altman

All the films will be shown at the Capitol-Filmoteca Cinema in Albacete (Plaza del Altozano, 9).
