Tara Murphy/Sandgrain Productions

Directed By: Tracy Christian
From gifted first-time director Tracy Christian comes an exhilarating documentary that speaks to the nurturing power of art. In the slums of Nairobi, Kenyan actress Anne Wanjugu provides a purpose for children struggling with poverty and worse by putting them on stage. Her intent isn't star-making, it's providing a chance at self-expression. Prepare to be wowed. Wanjugu is a true inspiration and Christian captures her work and spirit with scrappy vibrancy as the kids move out into the world without their mentor.
