“Tales of the Accidental City” | Director: Maïmouna Jallow, 2021, Kenya, 55′ min. Language / Subtitles: English / Spanish

In this humorous and biting film, a motley crew of Nairobi residents are brought together by Zoom for a court-mandated anger management class. Diana, Jacinda, Louis Njoroge and Sarah Obama must explain how they got there and, with the help of their quirky therapist, find a way to heal their wounds. As they exchange stories, deeper issues of class, inequality and the social injustices suffered by many inhabitants of Africa’s big cities come to light.

To follow: discussion between director Maïmouna Jallow and Jamkunda coordinator Mamadou Dia.
