Kenya’s film Supa Modo gets international nod

The Black Panther is not the only hero in town! Over the weekend, droves hit the theatres as the new kid on the block, Supa Modo, dropped.

The film is produced by One Fine Day Films and Ginger Ink, the team behind Kati Kati, Nairobi Half Life, Something Necessary, Soul Boy, and Veve. And as with its predecessors, the film has garnered international recognition receiving a special mention in the Generations category – one of the nine awards given at this year’s festival to African-linked films at the just-concluded Berlin International Film Festival.

Supa Modo tells the inspiring story of a young girl (Jo), whose dream of becoming a super-heroine is threatened by a terminal illness, inspiring her village to rally together to make her dream come true.

Supa Modo’s incredible story is inspired by true events as captured by Likarion Wainaina, who drew inspiration from the little heroes at Kenyatta National Hospital in Ward 1E.

Likarion’s Supa Modo is implausible! The storyline is inventive, witty and unpredictable and the background in which the story is set captures the culture of the central community so well, making the story so relatable, so Kenyan!

The movie features some breathtaking art direction, outstanding acting from the colourful actors, and the soundtracks and music is simply compelling. The witty dialogue makes the film a great entertainment and the plot twists will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Supa Modo is set to premiere on March 27 at the second edition of the Nairobi Film Festival, where it will be the opening film. The movie was the only African selection at the 68 Berlin International Film Festival where it had its world premiere.
