It’s an all-Kenyan affair this time at the Mengi Mengi Film Club. We follow the troubling encounters of Mama Margaret Kamango and her beloved grandson Karisa in The Letter (2019) by Maia Lekow & Chris King. The documentary explores fear, greed and the dangerous clash between Christian evangelism and superstitious beliefs. Hope springs eternal in Wanuri Kahiu’s PUMZI (2009).
