Sunday afternoon, July 7, 2013, I was with journalists at the Zanzibar international Film Festival where the Dhow countries are celebrated and its people united in a shared legacy connected by land and more importantly sea, the Indian Ocean.
We spoke about journalism in the region and specifically new media, such as Internet radio and social networking media like Twitter and Facebook, Linkedin and so on.
The workshop went well, but there was no Internet so I was unable to broadcast live that day as planned. I am uploading the interview with Screen Writer & Director: Jinna Mutune whose film LEO screened yesterday afternoon. Tonight is closing night at ZIFF. Believe it or not, the sun is setting and it is almost 7 p.m. (obviously written that day.)
LEO is a charming and beguiling adult fairy-tale set in Nairobi, a Metropolitan City in Kenya that is a melting pot of East African culture, art, politics and commerce. It is a story about Maasai boy, raised in a low-income home, achieving his dream against all odds.
LEO is a simple story that captures the essence of a child’s heart still open to all the posssibilities of achieving his dream in “Kenya” Africa. Executive Producers are: Chris Kirubi, Bernard Wambugu; Julian Kyula, Donald Gichane; Producer: Paul Masinde.
