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

Forum: Empowered yet Displaced, Mar. 14 2017 @ Seminar Room – Rift Valley Institute

Date: Tuesday, March 14, 2017
Venue: Rift Valley Institute, Kileleshwa
Time: 10am – 12:30pm
Entry: Prior RSVP

About
Every year since 2008, the world had become less peaceful. In the Horn and Central Africa, conflict threatens and destroys the lives, homes and jobs of millions of women, men and children, trapping them in a vicious cycle of violence, poverty and inequality. Efforts to address and prevent conflicts and disasters face serious obstacles. In these countries, civil society space is shrinking as both physical and political access is limited and upholding humanitarian principles of impartiality and independence—particularly in conflict situations—remains a key challenge.

By the beginning of this year, it was believed that over 51 million people were forcibly displaced as a result of persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. This is believed to be the highest number since the Second World War. One-third of the world’s poor live in fragile and conflict-ridden countries. By 2018, this share is likely to grow to half, and by 2030 it could be as much as two-thirds.

On 14 March 2017, the Rift Valley Forum will host a panel discussion and photo exhibition featuring voices of displaced women in South Sudan, Burundi, Ethiopia, Uganda and parts of the DRC. The discussion will look into peace processes in the region and the role of the international community in ensuring that peace agreements are implemented.

Discussants
Dr. Cirino Hiteng, South Sudanese Scholar
Shuvai Busuman Nyoni, Director – Africa Leadership Centre
Madame Domitille Barancira, Burundian Women Movement for Peace and Security
Peter Kamalingin , Oxfam- Uganda
