From farmer to activist: Kenya and the consequences of climate change | DW Documentary


In his village in Kenya, farmer Kisilu Musya films the effects of climate change. But when a violent storm destroys crops, houses and huts, Kisilu becomes a climate activist.

„Thank You for the Rain“ is a joint film by Kisilu Musya, a Kenyan farmer, climate campaigner and video diarist, and Julia Dahr, a Norwegian filmmaker and activist. Kisilu and Julia live in completely different regions of the world, yet they share the same goals and interests: Fighting climate change, while bringing more attention to this issue. The two worked side by side for more than five years to complete this film.
