Film Screening: Legacy Film at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre presents… Stories Of Our Lives
On the 5th March 2016 Legacy Film will be bringing ‘Stories of Our Lives’ (Kenya/2014/ Dir: Jim Chuchu) to the screen at Bernie Grants Arts Centre.
This film anthology began as a result of The Nest Collective collecting and archiving the stories of persons identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex from across Kenya. After touring and collecting hundreds of vivid, compelling stories, they decided to turn some of these stories into short films. Using themselves as crew, and after turning some of the stories they gathered into scripts, they set about shooting the stories across the course of 8 months. Banned in Kenya, the making of these beautifully bold vignettes has proved to be an undertaking of activism in its own right.
