the african spelling book is a series of 3 minute films made by a group of street children living in nairobi. each film is inspired by stories written by the children themselves and they have been trained in the use of video cameras. each story reflects their view of the life in kenya and is a unique chance to explore their world and their point of view. the viewer’s preconceived ideas of africa are challenged by the children’s take on life. africa is portrayed as tragic, comic, beautiful, vital, but above all, dignified. films within the african spelling book include: ‘b’ for beauty… which one girl finds in a local café, ‘f’ for father, which explores a turbulent relationship between a family and their patriarch; and ‘t’ for tradition which portrays a girl and her elderly grandmother debating female circumcision.
