Cinema Pendent Projects


The Kids of Kibera are a group of children living in an orphanage in Nairobi who believe the Sun goes to sleep in the house over the horizon where they see it disappear every day. One day, though, the sun doesn’t appear. When they discover that it has been kidnapped by the mafia, who want to sell its energy, they set off on a wild adventure to rescue the Sun and restore light to the planet.
