Soul Boy is an outstanding new feature film that comes out of a Kenyan-German co-production and was shot in Kibera. Soul Boy was filmed by the Kenyan-Ghanaian Hawa Essuman alongside the German director Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run, Perfume, The International). The film script was developed by Billy Kahora of Kwani? and Tom Tykwer, transforming the mysteries and myths of this multi-faceted social microcosm into a modern fairytale story. The soundtrack features music by Princess Jully and Mr. Abbas. Soul Boy will be one of the best films to come out of Kenya. It is the first result of a project by One Fine Day Films, an alternative film production company that follows the non-profit society One Fine Day e.V., the local production company Ginger Ink, the film equipment manufacturer Arri München, the Göteborg International Film Festival and Goethe-Institut Nairobi. In this project, every year, an experienced filmmaker produces a feature film with a small team of professional crew and a much larger staff of young trainees from East Africa. Professional knowledge and perspectives are shared and acquired during the direct partnership on set. Every department gets one overall responsible person and several trainees that are involved in all creative and organizational steps.
How to get to the Kibera Screening:
Either take a KBS or CitiHoppa Bus number 32 from the General Post Office on Kenyatta Avenue going to Kibera and get off at the Kibera Terminal where they turn around. From there, proceed along the tarmac road for about 3 minutes by foot until you see a big screen on your left, directly next to the road.
Alternatively, if you want to come with your own car, go along Ngong Road and take a left turn just before Prestige Plaza. From there basically go straight all the way along Kibera Drive, till you reach the end of the estate, where the huts and houses stop and you cross a small stream. Directly to the left of the road there will be a big screen. Cars can be parked along the road. Security will be provided.
