Ni Sisi is S.A.F.E.’s new movie, which will be released on the 22nd February and features all your favourite S.A.F.E.actors.
Ni Sisi portrays a typical Kenyan community: a harmonious muddle of tribes, intermarriages, and extended families. Friends who have lived and worked together all their lives, who place no stock in which tribe their neighbour comes from. Then one day rumours begin to spread and suddenly mistrust takes hold.
The animation/motion graphics sequence in this trailer is incredibly stunning and adds visual intrigue into a documentary detailing the harrowing subject of violence and corruption women face when entering the male dominated world of politics in Sierra Leone.
