In Kenya, film has long been a way of bringing people together, for both entertainment and education. Under Our Skin sees potential in galvanising the power of film as a tool to inspire individuals and communal efforts towards positive change around Human Rights outcomes.
Under Our Skin festival is an opportunity to engage audiences in an open organised environment, creating spaces where communities can reflect on and discuss existing social issues. We believe film has the power to motivate discussion and inspire change in individuals, and communities for the good of Kenyan society. By bringing diverse groups together in Kenya, we hope to use film to promote discussion, inspire creativity and influence future collaborations.
We want to offer a space for Kenyans of all backgrounds to come together and address pressing issues that individuals, groups, and communities grapple with on a daily basis.
