Thank You for the Rain (87 min, 2017)
Directed by Julia Dahr
Country of production: United Kingdom
THE BASIL WRIGHT FILM PRIZE, 2019 Winner

Over the last five years, Kisilu, a smallholder farmer in Kenya, has used his camera to capture his family life, his village and the impacts of climate change. He has filmed floods, droughts and storms —and their human costs. Following a storm that destroys his house, Kisilu starts building a community movement of farmers fighting the impacts of extreme weather and he takes this message of hope all the way to the UN Climate Talks in Paris, COP21—where he faces inertia, bureaucracy and arrogance. Thrown together with Norwegian filmmaker Julia Dahr, a remarkable film emerges that tells his story of strength, but also of the murky contradictions in the global climate change movement.

Organizer/Host: Sayd Randle
