The photographs that make-up this exhibition were shot over a period of fifty-six years, (1952 – 2008), by Sir Mohinder Dhillon, a Kenyan news camera man. The photographs allow us to travel with Mohinder back in time and eavesdrop on history, reminding us of our past and the individuals and events that helped shape our world.
“Looking back over the more than 83 years I have spent in the world; I cannot help but feel a sense of wonder. Did I really do all these things? Go to all these places? Meet all these people? How, as a simple village boy from Punjab who never even finished school, did I end up travelling the globe, dodging bullets to make a living by shooting thousands of meters of film in some of the world’s most dangerous trouble spots?” – Sir Mohinder Dhillon, October 2016.

The show comprises some of Brooke’s classic subjects of cattle with dust, Mt Kenya and tribal women. He also depicts Aloes, low water in a river and Pelicans; a show stopper of a painting and something of a departure for the artist. Brooke’s famous economy of line becomes more and more prevalent.
Don’t miss Brooke’s spectacular rendition of our ‘vanishing Kenya’.

Matsugae Kiyoaki (Tsumabuki Satoshi) was brought up by the aristocratic Ayakura family. Kiyoaki is in love with Count Ayakura’s daughter, Satoko (Takeuchi Yuko), but doesn’t know how to express his love to her. Satoko accepts a proposal of arranged marriage from the imperial family which will benefit the Ayakuras, too. Satoko writes to Kiyoaki to confirm his feeling for her, but his replies never arrive and she ends up accepting the engagement. Only after the official announcement of the marriage does Kiyoaki realize how much he loves Satoko. They begin to meet in secret, in full knowledge that their affair is doomed. Then, Satoko realizes to her horror that she is pregnant. Her parents try to force her to have an abortion, but Satoko leaves her family and doesn’t even tell Kiyoaki about the child. Kiyoaki contracts tuberculosis and although he tries in vain to meet Satoko, he succumbs to the disease and dies.

“Grass Is Greener” a gut-dismantling comedy from the supreme kings of comedy Heartstrings Entertainment.
This wildly hilarious comedy will crazily show the fruits of craving for what is not necessarily yours. That greed is one of the most hard-hitting vice that one can ever practice.
A man has been craving for the neighbour’s wife, their house and the life they lead. What he doesn’t know is that the reason that the grass is greener on the other side is because the grass is planted on sewage.
