Screening of ‘Wind of Change’, a film about climate and health


Partner Event to be held on 31 October 2014
Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole St, London W1G 0AE

On 31 October the Royal Society of Medicine screened this award-winning documentary that follows Kisilu, a Kenyan farmer and father of seven children, and his family living on the front line of climate change. For generations they have been self-reliant, but now they are struggling heavily with drought and storms. Through observational footage and Kisilu’s own video diary, the film built a warm and sensitive portrait of a family struggling but still refusing to give up. We were invited into their life and experience together with them their fight, dreams and moments of joy.
