I can't stand the rain

Over a period of five years, Kenyan farmer and climate activist Kisilu has documented the daily life of his family and village as they struggle on the frontlines of climate change. This inspiring and highly relevant documentary portrays a society which manages to remain optimistic in the face of increasingly extreme drought and floods. Kisilu travels to Oslo and Paris to share the experiences of his local community, and despite encountering adversity, arrogance and a labyrinthine bureaucracy along the way, he returns to Kenya with newfound hope and inspiration.

Festival guests: Julia Dahr, director and Kisilu Musya, co-director and main character
