WFC Kenya: Nairobi Half Life

Oh, this is so not my genre. It’s the old “naïve kid with dreams going to the big city” plot. I just sympathise too much with the hapless protagonist. “Nooo… doooon’t… Dooooon’t…”

But that’s just me. This film has obvious qualities: Things degenerate (and how!) a lot faster than they usually do in these films, and then we’re onto the next bit, which is more fun.

Nairobi Half Life. David ‘Tosh’ Gitonga. 2012. Kenya.
