About Between the Rains

Filmed over the course of four consecutive years during record low annual precipitation in northern Kenya, Between the Rains is a feature collaboration with the Turkana-Ngaremara community that seeks to understand the experiences of a childhood caught within a traditional culture that is a casualty of climate change. [82 min; documentary; Swahili with English subtitles]

A virtual Q&A with filmmaker Andrew H. Brown, moderated by visiting scholar Paulo Ramos, will follow the screening.

"With its languid pace, Between the Rains affords the audience an immersive experience into a land few people know much about." — Murtada Elfadl, Variety

"Through its focus on one young member of the nomadic Turkana community, this sharp documentary makes clear the personal cost of this global issue through lived experience." — Nikki Baughan, Screen International
