We continue our celebration with this new short film To Catch A Dream from Kenyan multidisciplinary art collective The Nest and their in-house fashion initiative Chico Leco.

The 13-minute film stars Kenyan model Ajuma Nasenyama who plays a grieving widow who’s tormented by recurring nightmares. In order to get rid of them, Ajuma journeys from the physical realm to face the ghosts of her past in the afterlife. The film features designs from eight local fashion houses and scenes from the film were shot locally in Magadi, Lake Naivasha and various locations throughout Nairobi.

You can stream and download the film’s original soundtrack, also by Chuchu, on Soundcloud and Bandcamp.
