This year, representatives from 12 European countries chose the best films or documentaries under the theme “Somewhere Else: Searching for a Home”.

Each of the films under this theme will look at the subject of integration into a new country or culture.

WITH only one eviction show left before the Big Brother StarGame finale, Wati, Talia and Keagan are the only housemates guaranteed places in the finals after Wati saved himself and put up Kyle for possible eviction in his place this Sunday.

The 35 housemates – 28 loud and rowdy Downvillers and seven elite Upvillers, who started the game in May – have now been reduced to seven deserving contenders vying for the coveted prize of US$300,000.

The last eviction show on Sunday will tell who of Jannette, Kyle, Lady May and Prezzo will be joining the three finalists.

The Malawian used his prerogative to ‘save and replace’ as the week’s Head of House to save himself from eviction and instead placed Kyle’s head firmly under the guillotine.

Could Wati’s decision have anything to do with Keitta’s eviction?

Whither Junia . . . and Fifi?“I WANT to see where my acting career goes and maybe Fifi and I will try modelling,” Junia Cloete says, the second of Namibia’s three representatives in this year’s Big Brother Africa StarGame.

Fifi is the nickname other housemates affectionately gave to her round tummy during her stay in the house before her eviction two weeks ago . . . and she seems to like and even adopted the name.
