The first ever Kenyan entry for the Oscars, Nairobi Half Life has become the biggest theatrical success for a local film. This gripping tale of struggle, ambition, crime, prostitution, and corruption follows Mwas, a young aspiring actor from a small village in Kenya, who dreams of becoming an accomplished actor one day, and in pursuit of this and the chagrin of his brother and parents, he makes his way to Nairobi -the golden city of opportunity. Alone in a city where he doesn´t know a soul, he is quickly drawn into a world of crime as he struggles to pursue his dream. A classic tale told from an upbeat, Kenyan take, Nairobi Half Life "tells the real Nairobi story," according to director Gitonga, "when I was making the film I told myself I´d be telling the story as it is, as I understand Nairobi as a Kenyan, as I see it. I think that´s been the main thing."
