Between the Rains

In Kenya, the Turkana are directly affected by climate change. Increasingly, frequent droughts are impacting on their lives, intensifying tensions and conflicts. Filmed over a period of four years, Between the Rains portrays with sensitivity and finesse Kole’s coming of age as a young shepherd on the path to becoming a warrior. Kole experiences doubt, grief and violence in a landscape decimated by drought. The film’s splendid photography serves as a wake-up call, highlighting the devastating consequences of climate change for this community.
