Between the Rains

Book Tickets
This revealing, visually captivating film, shot over the course of a four-year drought in Northern Kenya, offers an original take on the conventional coming-of-age narrative. 
‘The elders say that nature wasn’t always this angry at us.’ Between the Rains tells the story of Kolei, a young shepherd whose name translates as ‘living among the goats’. Unfolding over the course of a prolonged drought, we witness the boy’s inner conflict as he not only questions his own identity as a warrior – a path that was chosen for him – but the erosion of the culture that has shaped every aspect of his life. Filmed during a record-low period of annual precipitation, Moses Thuranira and Andrew H. Brown’s feature collaboration with the Turkana-Ngaremara community seeks to understand the experience of a childhood within a traditional culture that is directly affected by climate change.
