Kenyan film ‘Midnight Van’ is set to be released in June, two months ahead of the 2022 General Elections.
Written by Ndeda but directed by Carol Odongo, the film explores the culpability of the media when it comes to post-election violence told through the eyes of two news anchors.
“I want to highlight the irony of those in high positions thinking they are “safe” in their “high towers”, not realizing that those towers they build can imprison them and lead to their destruction,” said Carol in a statement.
“The overall aim of this story is to serve as a reminder that all our actions, subconscious or otherwise, all have direct and very real consequences.”
The former radio presenter also said that he wrote the film in just two nights and is now in the process of raising funds to help finish the filming.
“The moment I got the inspiration to write this script I wrote the first draft in two days with no sleep! It’s that close to me because it’s a film that represents my country whenever election season comes around,” he said.
“We are on a mission to change mindsets so that we don’t end up with the same shit just different election. Go to the link in my bio to see how you can help us fund this film and have it out to Kenyans before election day.”
