Join us on Wednesday, November 20, at 6:30 p.m. as Patrick Mureithi, Artist in Residence at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri, shares his most recent documentary “Kenya: Until Hope is Found,” the story of a nation’s healing from psychological trauma after Kenya’s 2007-2008 post-election violence that left 1,200 dead and 500,000 people displaced from their homes. It focuses on a gathering of victims and perpetrators in Kibera, Kenya’s largest slum and the epicenter of the violence, as they learn about various ways of taking responsibility for their healing. The late Roger Ebert called it “an urgent documentary by a filmmaker I admire.”

Mr. Mureithi’s films are about the power of and the need for forgiveness, and they contain themes that are not just about the African story but the human one.

ALL of the proceeds from the screening will go towards the Inua Mimi Children’s Rescue Center in Kibera. The center is featured in the documentary. You can directly donate to the rescue center by visiting this link. For more information, please visit josiahfilms.com.
