DIY Space for London will screen The NEST Collective’s recent film, Stories of our Lives, a film about the queer community in Kenya.
The creation of Stories of Our Lives began in June 2013 when the members of The NEST Collective began collecting and archiving the stories of persons identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and intersex from Kenya, often unheard stories that characterize the queer experience in Kenya. After several months of touring and collecting hundreds of vivid, compelling stories, the Collective decided to turn some of these stories into short films. The scripts were based on a number of the stories the filmmakers recorded, and they shot the films over the course of eight months. The resulting shorts were edited together into Stories of Our Lives.
