THE LETTER

THE LETTER

Online Screening

In an increasingly common scheme to steal their land, land-owning Kenyan elders are being accused of witchcraft by younger family members and sent away. Responding to a bizarre Facebook message that his beloved grandmother is killing children, Karisa visits his family compound in rural Kenya to investigate. This unhurriedly paced, visually engaging story explores complex family dynamics and the intergenerational misunderstanding that can occur when traditional values and the demands of the modern world collide.
