Five years ago Kisilu, a Kenyan farmer, started to use his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the damages of climate change. When a violent storm throws him and a Norwegian filmmaker together we see him transform from a father, to community leader to an activist on the global stage.

THANK YOU FOR THE RAIN is a feature documentary by Julia Dahr and Kisilu Musya. It addresses a range of issues linked to climate change, including climate justice, urbanization, gender equality, education, access to water, climate refugees, and adaptation.

"This compelling human portrait asks what the future holds when clear evidence of climate change presents itself and the most powerful politicians in the world choose to do nothing. [...] An inspiring portrait of individual who knows that if one loves this planet, one must do all one can to save it."POV Magazine

"Good intentions take a toll in this astutely human film: Kisilu grapples with setbacks, disillusionment and a wife and brood of children back home who seriously miss him."The Toronto Star

"As a climate change researcher, I found Julia Dahr's film a must-see documentary."Sheffield Hallam University

"A look not only at the effects of climate change, but of the dedication it takes to be an activist and family man at the same time [...] An impassioned plea for climate change action."Toronto Film Scene
