Exhibition: Kingdom Within by Jesie Otumba, Until May 31 2017 @ BIEA


Dates: Until May 31, 2017
Venue: BIEA, Laikipia Road – Kileleshwa,

About
Jesie Otumba from Brush Tu Art Studio is a self-taught artist based at Brush tu Art Studio. He was solely driven by his talent and has been drawing for two years. His works have been exhibited in several places, including the Dusit D2 Gallery.

His works consist mostly of chess pieces because they speak a lot. He uses the chess board and pieces as the base of his inspiration and communication to people. He loves using color pencils, especially white to express himself because of the realism they bring out.

For Jesie, the chessboard represents the world we are in. The chess pieces and their different moves represent people with different roles in the society while the blackness on the background of most of his pieces shows the darkness brought into the world by our actions and moves.

Film Pre-Screening: Thank You For the Rain, Mar. 27 2017 @ Rift Valley Institute – Seminar Room


On 27 March 2017, the Rift Valley Forum will host a pre-screening of the film Thank You For the Rain by Kenyan farmer Kisilu Musya and Norwegian filmmaker Julia Dahr.

Date: March 27, 2017
Venue: BIEA, Laikipia Road, Kileleshwa
Time: 2 – 4pm
Entry: Prior Registration – registration link

About
Thank You For the Rain, which premiered at the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival, documents Kisilu’s life as a farmer and the impact of climate change on his family and his village over the past five years. Besides showing the natural impact of floods, droughts and storms, the film also shows the human cost for Kisilu’s children and wife. When his house is destroyed by a storm, the self-taught filmmaker starts a farmers’ movement and calls for action against the extreme consequences of the weather.

Kisilu makes it far in his struggle—all the way to Oslo and the COP21 in Paris—but the further Kisilu gets into the world of global politics, the more resistance, bureaucracy and arrogance he faces.

A panel discussion to reflect on the film and address the drought crisis in the region will follow the screening.

Moderator: Peter Mudamba – Docubox
Discussants: Kisilu Musya – Filmmaker, Wanjira Mathai (TBC) – Wangari Maathai Institute (WMI), Oyunga Pala
