The film is by Mbithi Masya, a Kenyan writer-director and member of the highly acclaimed music and art collective Just A Band.

Mbithi’s feat puts him in the same conversation as legendary filmmaker Woody Allen, who is also a former recipient of the FIPRESCI award.

Congratulations from The Insyder to Mbithi, keep shining champ!
