Thank You For The Rain | Julia Dahr | Norway/UK | 85 mins
Interfaith Scotland has teamed up with Take One Action for an online screening of Thank You For The Rain followed by an online dialogue on the issues raised in the film.
Five years ago Kisilu, a Kenyan farmer, started to use his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the damages of climate change. When a violent storm throws him and a Norwegian filmmaker together we see him transform from a father, to community leader to an activist on the global stage. Thank You For The Rain addresses a range of issues linked to climate change, including climate justice, urbanisation, gender equality, education, access to water, climate refugees, and adaptation.
The film will be broadcast online from 6.30 – 7.55pm on 29th November and participants will be sent a link to view the film. A Zoom link will also be sent for those who wish to join an online dialogue after the film which will take place from 8 – 8.30pm.
