Kenia 2018 – Director: Philippa Ndisi-Herrmann – Original with English subtitles

An investigative documentary about a giant harbour project on the coast of Kenya – that was the original idea. Yet the search for the right approach to the topic on the island of Lamu leads to a more personal exploration. Filmmaking as an existential process.

We present the German premiere of the film at DOK.fest München 2019.
