Watch Part 2 of Kenyan Dystopian Short Film, ‘Monsoons Over the Moon’

Watch Part 2 of Kenyan Dystopian Short Film, 'Monsoons Over the Moon'

Check out part 2 below of the dystopian short film from Kenyan visual artist, Dan Muchina, who works under the pseudonym “Abstract Omega.” I shared part one about 2 weeks ago. Part 2 has now been released.

Titled “Monsoons Over the Moon,” the film, a reflection of the artist’s own experiences as a part of Nairobi’s youth, is more of a mood-piece, set in Nairobi, in which the government has shut down the internet, books and the written word have become exponentially valuable, and the world has been turned on it’s head.

The story follows a young lady from the streets whose violent boyfriend has disappeared, and his rivals are using her to look for him. She feels imprisoned by her circumstances until one of her friends gives her a book which inspires her to open her mind.

Anita Kavuu-Ng’ang’a, Blessing Lungaho, Renson Michael, Samuel Charles Mwangi, Brian ‘Geezo’ Mulaa and Lucy Ndinda star in the short.

Wangechi Ngugi produced.

The film is actually split into 2 halves. If you missed it, first watch part 1 immediately below; and then watch part 2 underneath it (or just skip to part 2 if you already watched part 1).
