Award–winning film ‘Kati Kati’ set to kick-off NBO Film Festival

Shares

The Kenyan premiere of the award–winning film “Kati Kati” is set to open the inaugural NBO Film Festival on Thursday, 26th of January, 2016 at Nairobi’s Prestige Plaza.

Despite this being director Mbithi Masya’s first feature film, “Kati Kati” has won him much praise including the FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics) prize for the Discovery Programme at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival 2016. The film tackles what would happen if one was to wake up in the afterlife where you arrive with no recollection of life or death.

The NBO Film Festival, which takes place from 26th of January  to 5th of February, was established with the aim of showcasing Kenyan Cinema and will feature several other films. All movies are a single screening only, except “Kati Kati” which will also be showing widely in cinemas (tickets available at the CINEMA ONLY).
