A film series inspired by the idea that individuals have the right to take charge of their lives to improve their community and society for a better place. But what happens when that general idea is challenged and we don’t see black and white anymore, but a series of grays? Through a microscopic lens (and lots of comedy!) this film series will explore various factors; be it the law, corporations, health institutions, environment, and protection forces, that make it an uphill battle to become an ideal society.
LICENSE TO KILL film series is curated by Azza Satti and screened to a diverse audience of independent and foreign film appreciators. Films will be screened once a month underneath the Nairobi stars at Benga House on Kyuna Crescent. Guests are required to bring Kikoys or blankets to sit on, and food and drinks will be provided by AQUEOUS.

Based on the best-selling book of the same name by Alaa Al Aswany, this film explores the different socio-economic layers, which makes Cairo a fascinating city. This comedy-drama will take you into the Art Deco-style building of the haves and the have notes living in the same premises but have parallel lives. As we follow the tenants we find out about stories of bribery, sexual abuse, homosexuality and other issues that are hidden so well from judgemental eyes.
