Wind of Change

40 min, 2012

“A different, well-told and warm story about family life in Africa.” - Jury’s comment, Nordic Docs.

The documentary Wind of Change (2012, 40 min) tells the story of the Kenyan farmer Kisilu Musya as he and his family the rainy season of 2011. The story is told through observational footage and Kisilu's own video diary. The documentary has won awards both in Norway and abroad, been screened at more than 25 festivals, and used by more than 30 NGOs worldwide. The Norwegian youth organization Spire, which works for a more fair and sustainable distribution of the world's resources, has been an important collaborator in distributing the film.

Since Wind of Change was released in 2012, we continued the collaboration with Kisilu, and a new documentary about him was broadcast on Al Jazeera English in 2015. Read more about this project here.
