2010 Award
Families of Kenya
( Master Communications $29.95 Score: )

One of a series of films that introduce children to families from distant lands. Told by two 11-year old boys, one in Nairobi, an urban setting, one in a rural setting who lives on a farm. In both instances, the chores each are expected to do, the schools they attend and their day to day lives present a real contrast to each other and an even more dramatic contrast to the lives of young viewers. This feels more like a school film than home entertainment for home, yet, they are more interesting than so much of the fare directed at young audiences. This includes some footage from a game preserve with African wildlife, as well as dances and some footage on how the families earn their living. They say 5 & up, we'd say this is more appropriate for 7 & up.
