African Directors • 1h 27m
Directed by Julia Dahr and Kisilu Musya • Documentary • 2017 • 87 minutes
Five years ago Kisilu, a Kenyan farmer, started to use his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the damages of climate change. When a violent storm throws him and a Norwegian filmmaker together we see him transform from a father, to community leader to an activist on the global stage.
THANK YOU FOR THE RAIN addresses a range of issues linked to climate change, including climate justice, urbanization, gender equality, education, access to water, climate refugees, and adaptation.
"This compelling human portrait asks what the future holds when clear evidence of climate change presents itself and the most powerful politicians in the world choose to do nothing. An inspiring portrait of individual who knows that if one loves this planet, one must do all one can to save it." —Patrick Mullen, P.O.V. Magazine
