Awards

SIGNIS Awards at the ZIFF Festival of the Dhow Countries | 2006

From its initial resemblance to the usual evangelical propaganda, the film develops into a critical intersection of the different social layers of Kenyan society, laying bare, especially, the contradictions that bedevil church officials. This film addresses issues of vocation, integrity and admission of failure in ministry.
