SOFTIE

Friday, Jan 29 (All day) to Thursday, Feb 18 (All day)

QUARANTINE CINEMA OFFERING

AVAILABLE STARTING JANUARY 29

 

 

Daring and audacious, Softie is one of Kenya's most provocative photojournalists. Will running for office himself be his most dangerous assignments yet?

Softie has long fought injustices in his country as a political activist. Now he’s taking the next step by running for office in a regional Kenyan election. From the moment he decides to run, telling his wife, Njeri, with a hesitant laugh, he responds to each challenge with optimism. But running a clean campaign against corrupt opponents becomes increasingly difficult. Softie soon finds that challenging strong political dynasties is putting his family at risk. Should his country really come before his family?

"Eye-opening as "Softie" is as an immediate account of toxic Kenyan politics, it's an equally moving marriage story, unsentimental but generously sympathetic in its study of a family brought to the brink of collapse for a greater good cause." - Peter Keough, Boston Globe
