Coming of Age

Judy Kibinge



The film depicts the three stages of democracy as seen through the eyes of a girl growing up in Kenya. The Kenyatta Era was a time of great optimism and post-independence euphoria. It was followed by the era of dictatorship under Daniel arap Moi, and finally the ushering in of a third president, Mwai Kibaki. But after the disputed election results in December 2007 and the resultant violent civil strife and the death of hundreds, we are left wondering if democracy can ever truly come of age.
