Local film The more things change is set to premiere on Friday, November 12, and thereafter be available for free on The Nest Collective’s Youtube Channel from Wednesday 17th November 2021, 10 AM.
The movie, produced by Nest Collective, will be watched for the very first time at the NBO Film Festival in the premier.
The More Things Change features several actors, beginning with its star Nyawara Ndambia, alongside Melvin Alusa (Mission To Rescue, Crime and Justice, The First Grader, The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind), Bryan Ngatia (Too Early For Birds), Emmanuel Mugo (Sense8, Pillow Talk, This Is Life) and young luminary Stycie Waweru (Supa Modo, Just In Time, Lusala) and several others. The film was co-directed by Akati Khasiani and Mars Maasai, and written by them, as well as Collective members Noel Kasyoka and Njoki Ngumi.
“We’re really happy to be so close to the release, after many months of work from so many talented people. We can’t wait to see how folks will react!” said Njeri Gitungo, the Nest’s head producer.
It’s a fiction anthology feature film that has been 2 years in the making. The film was made in partnership with Forum Civ, as part of the Wajibu Wetu program.
TMTC has been described as a slow-burn, cerebral, dramatic thriller. It boasts the unique narrative of looking back into Kenya’s political past, and then exploring the present, as well as imagining an exciting potential speculative future, to explore resistance by individuals and communities.
The film explores what happens when an ordinary girl takes on a powerful adversary at great personal cost.
