The Kenyan film Act of Love  recently scooped the Best Short Film and Best Scriptwriter awards at the inaugural Mombasa International Film Festival.
Inspired by the writer Shelley Gitonga's true story, Act of Love is a moving short film set in Nairobi, about Juliana (Mwixx Mutinda), a young mother who holds on to sanity by a thread as her world is turned upside down in search of a livelihood.
It's a poignant story that explores motherhood and post-partum depression in Kenya. A taboo topic.
With an astounding 16 Festival Selections, 13 Nominations and 7 Awards, within just 4 Months from its Premiere, ACT OF LOVE has also won the Nile Grand Prize for Best Short Film, at the 13th Luxor African Film Festival in Egypt and is only the 2nd Short Film from Kenya to win an Award there, after TITHES & OFFERINGS in 2019; and the 6th Film overall from Kenya.
This comes just 2 Weeks after winning Best Short Film and Best Scriptwriter at the inaugural Mombasa International Film Festival.
And to Celebrate, the Cast & Crew shall be joining the 2nd #WeWatchKenyan Watch Party by MyMovies.Africa™, on Friday 29th March 2024 (6.00pm-10.00pm), at OUT Reality in The Mall (Basement), Westlands.
