Kenyan comedy The Captain of Nakara staring Charles Bukeko and directed by Bob Nyanja is set for its world premiere at the 2012 Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) in Los Angeles this coming February.
Dubbed as a Kenyan romantic comedy, is a story about Muntu, a small fry criminal who pretends to own a profitable market stall and is afraid of losing the woman of his dreams. His honest attempts to turn his lies into reality fail, due to the ubiquitous local corruption. Impersonated as “Captain of Nakara”, wearing a stolen military uniform, Muntu manages to succeed in defending his rights, his happiness – and ends up elected as Kwetu’s president!
The film will be screening on Friday February 10th at 1:15pm and Tuesday February 14th at 3:15pm.
Other Kenyan films showing at the festival include ‘From A Whisper‘ directed by Wanuri Kahiu and ‘Legend of Ngong Hills‘ directed by Kwame Nyong’o.
