You may have heard the buzz and seen social media post updates from cast and crew, but the feature length Kenyan effort “18 Hours” by ROCQUE PICTURES finally has its poster, and we are super excited about its release next month!
The events of the film are inspired by actual events that took place in Kenya, and the resultant conversation regarding healthcare. According to its official plot-line, “Zach works for Raven paramedics services. His job is to handle emergency cases. An emergency call comes in from a witness about an accident that along a Highway. A pedestrian has been involved in a high speed hit and run while on his way home from work.
Assigned head of the rescue, Zach and his driver Mark dash out of their base and in about 20 minutes, they arrive at the scene. The casualty is bleeding from the head and not moving.
Zach and Mark get the casualty into their ambulance and soon after, they are on their way to different hospitals. Joined by Sabina (the casualty victim’s wife), they each take turns watching over the casualty as they ensure he has sufficient oxygen all the time. Zack is determined to keep the accident victim alive, 18 hours after the accident”
The film has a stellar cast lineup that includes Nick Ndeda, Sue Wanjiru, Brian Ogola, Isaya Evans, Shirleen Wangari
Expectations are high, and following its release next month across the East African region, the aim is to tour is through selected festivals in Europe and North America.
Best Young African Filmmaker winner Kenyan Njue both wrote and directed the film which is produced by Rocque Pictures. It is produced by Phoebe Ruguru and Bill Jones Afwani with an assist from Brenda Wairimu.
