Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai

I'm posting this up because I think every Kenyan needs to see this film. Moving, powerful, inspiring, incredible..too many words. I went to a screening, and there wasn't a dry eye in the audience after the film.


It is now showing at Prestige Plaza. I think especially young Kenyans need to see this because a lot of them don't know how far we've really come from as a country. Thats why it boggles my mind to think anyone would vote no and stick with the current (soon to be old)constitution. But that's a blog for another day. Go see this film. Hopefully it will be aired on National TV sometime soon..

 Taking Root tells the dramatic story of Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai whose simple act of planting trees grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment, protect human rights, and defend democracy—a movement for which this charismatic woman became an iconic inspiration.
