A love story from the frontline of climate change


Over the last four years Kisilu, a Kenyan smallholder, has used his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the impacts of climate change. Over the years he has filmed floods, droughts, storms but also the more human impacts - his kids are sent home from school when school fees can’t be paid; men are moving to towns in search for jobs; and relations with his family become more and more strained. But Kisilu and his family refuse to be victims - instead they find themselves at the forefront of a movement for climate justice.

This film needs your support to get finished.

Help launch KISILU: BEFORE THE FLOOD by making a donation today. As little as £10 goes a long way, but more is helpful too!

We are in the midst of editing the film but need extra funds to get us to the strongest possible theatrical / festival cut, and to distribute the film as widely as possible. With your help we can finish Kisilu: Before the Flood and launch it into the world in 2016.

In gratitude, you will receive a link to the film when finished.

Thank you.
