Kibera Kid is an award winning short film set in the Kibera slums in Nairobi, Kenya. It was written, directed and co-produced by Nathan Collett in collaboration with the locals of Kibera.
This twelve minute film featured Kibera actors in the principal roles. It has played at film festivals worldwide including the Berlin Film Festival and it won a Student EMMY from Hollywood. It has been profiled by the BBC, Reuters and Al Jazeera English. In April 2009, a feature film follow up to Kibera Kid was shot. The full length film focuses on tribal conflict and the possibility of reconciliation. The film had a larger effect as it led to the formation of Hot Sun Foundation which trains the youth of the slums to make their own films.
Famous quotes containing the word kid:
“The point is children lie to others for good and sufficient reasons, but they dont kid themselves. They know who did what, but they feel no moral imperative to inform grownups.”
—Leontine Young (20th century)
