THE FIRST GRADER (12A)
Director Justin Chadwick - 2010 - UK/ USA/Kenya - 1hr 43min
Starring: Naomie Harris, Oliver Litondo, Tony Kgoroge
The true story of an 84 year old Kenyan villager and ex Mau Mau freedom fighter who fights for his right to go to school for the first time to get the education he could never afford. Full of vitality and humour, the film explores the remarkable relationships the man builds with his classmates some eighty years his junior. Through his journey, we are taken back to the shocking untold story of British colonial rule 50 years earlier.
“A tearful, joyful, imperfect, yet nearly irresistible ode to the human spirit.” Los Angeles Times
