Kenya Stories includes five short films shot in five different corners of Kenya by local filmmakers in their local language, mentored by SDI and Docubox in a hybrid training and development programme. The films will have their World Premiere at Aesthetica Film Festival as part of the Guest Programme (available online, 2-30 November 2021).
Over the hour, we will chat about the challenges of filming in rural Kenya, of developing stories and working with protagonists. We will also hear from Docubox and the work they do to support and promote East African filmmakers.
Guest speakers: from Docubox: Judy Kibinge and Angela Price and filmmakers Caroline Akai and Artsy Solomon.
