Thank You For The Rain

Showing on Tue 12 Oct

Showing times: 19:30 - 19:30

Cinema Duration:
Kisilu, a smallholder farmer in Kenya uses his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the impacts of climate change.

He films floods, droughts and storms but also the more human costs - his kids are sent home from school when he can’t pay the fees; men moving to towns in search for jobs; and family tensions rising.

Following a storm that destroys his house, Kisilu starts building a community movement of farmers fighting the impacts of extreme weather and he takes this message of hope all the way to the UN Climate Talks, in Paris, COP21. Here, amid the murky cut and thrust of politics at the biggest environmental show on earth, Kisilu and Norwegian filmmaker Julia Dahr's relationship takes on a remarkable twist, shedding a powerful light on the climate justice movement and the vastly different worlds they represent.

Fairtrade Chesham are screening the film Thank You For The Rain as a free event to support the Big Green Week, a nationwide celebration of action on Climate Change.
The donations received will be used to help those people and communities most affected by Climate Change.
