Thank You for the Rain (2017)
Director: Julia Dahr
87 minutes
English; Turkish subtitles

Can one man change the course of events to improve what extreme weather conditions have destroyed? Meeting farmer Kisilu Musya during her shoot in Kenya, director Julia Dahr’s Thank You for the Rain (2017) documents Musya’s journey from a family man to a community leader in his fight against the impact of climate change. The documentary film presents Musya’s own video records of the four-year devastation caused by the impact of floods, droughts and torrential storms; not only wreaking havoc on the land, but drawing away communities in search of new lives. Addressing issues surrounding climate change including urbanization, gender equality, and assimilation, Thank You for the Rain will screen for the first time in Ankara.
