Thank You for the Rain

Worlds Collide on the Frontline of Climate Change

Over the last four years, Kisilu has used his camera to capture the impacts of extreme weather on his family and village in Kenya. He has filmed floods, droughts and storms, and the way they force men to leave their families behind in search for jobs.

Traveling to Paris in 2015 to present his footage to delegates at the UN Climate Talks, Kisilu finds himself on the biggest political journey of his life.
