Shares

A Kenyan short-film has been chosen to feature in the Manhattan International Film Festival later this month.

BROTHER-brother by producer/director Sheila Mulinya will be screened at the Festival in New York.

“It has been selected for screening and master class at the Manhattan International Film Festival that is going down in New York on 27th and 28th January 2012,” says Sheila.

“If it manages the top 3 positions it is supposed to be shown at the United Nations headquarters!” she adds.

The Manhattan Festival prides itself on being dedicated to merging as large a gathering as possible of independent filmmakers from all over the world. Their forums are mainly targeted at developing new ways to fund filmmakers and helping to carving out their careers.

The focus of the festival is Human Dignity stories. Sheila’s production is among finalists for the World Youth Alliance’s 2011 International Film Festival. Other finalists hail from Ghana, Spain, Belgium, England, Rwanda, Philippines and the US.

BROTHER-Brother is the story of sibling rivalry between two brothers who live in Kawangware, Nairobi. It was shot in August 2008. Check out the film below.
