Kenya: Short Film “Watu Wote” Nominated for the Oscars

After “Watu Wote” scooped the Students Oscars in September 2017 and numerous International Festival Awards, today’s Oscars Jury pronouncement further warrants this Film project the publicity it deserves not only in the East and Horn of Africa region but the world over. 

The film, based on a true story, narrates the experience of a group of bus travelers who on 21st December 2015 in Mandera (Kenyan-Somali border region) were attacked by Al-Shabaab terrorists. Like in so many incidences before, the militia had planned to massacre all the over 30 Christians on board the bus.

WATU WOTE brings home an Oscar!

Watu Wote: All of Us - For a decade Kenya has been targeted by terrorist attacks of the Al-Shabaab. An atmosphere of anxiety and mistrust between Muslims and Christians is growing. Until in December 2015, Muslim bus passengers showed that solidarity can prevail.
