|Shots!!!!!!!!!!-alcoholic and non-alcoholic ones.|
I decided on shorts,shorts and shots(an evening of short films with a twist) and boy am I glad this is what I choose because I got to see 6 short films,free shots(non-alcoholic) and to meet part of the Watu Wote cast and the crew.If this not a win,I don't know what is.
The six short films that were screened are:
This was a really short film that felt more like a spoken word video.Honestly I didn't get it.
|Gisa(Imfura's main character) and his aunty take a break.She was taking him to see his late mum's house that had been destroyed during the genocide.This house was newly built at the time of the genocide and his family hadn't moved in yet 😢😢.|

We Need Prayers-This One Said No
This was so funny and had everyone laughing.It's people at a monthly chama meeting which turns into a the married people with children vs single people with no children war.The big assumption is that single people have no use for money and single person X in this film was fighting for his rights.
The Nest Collective facebook page has these two short films and all the films in their 'We Need Prayers' series,if you have some free time check them out.
|This brings back so many memories of all the trips I have taken to Elwak on the bus.When I used the bus to Elwak there was never peanuts sold though just water and assorted sodas and soft drinks, did the buses upgrade?|
I had a great time at the festival,saw so many famous creatives even said hi to Mbithi Masya(he from Kati Kati) and went home happier.
