VEVE

in VEVE, but also justice, fatherly responsibilities and love. ‘VEVE’ means the natural drug khat and this debut film revolves around the lives of many Kenyans. Kenzo wants to avenge his father. The power-hungry khat dealer Amos leads an election campaign in the style of Obama, and the farmers organise themselves against his exploitation. At the end, we see that everyone’S lives are intertwined and the power is only borrowed.
