Thank You For The Rain

87 min, 2017

Five years ago Kisilu 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. A film by Julia Dahr & Kisilu Musya.

The film had its world premiere at CPH:DOX in March 2017, followed by a festival run that included Hot Docs, Sheffield Doc/Fest and many others.
