So apparently,2-years down the line,filmmakers have decided to film the attack into a movie.
However,the saddest fact about this awesome idea is that the movie will not be filmed in Kenya but South Africa reason based on expenditure!!!
“Kenya is a beautiful country with a lovely pool of talent. Unfortunately, it is the only country without incentives or rebates to attract filmmakers. That is why many movies about Kenya are made in South Africa. The government is lenient with licences but the incentives are not there. For example, for $10 million spent making a movie, the South African Government gives back $2 million,”explained Richard Harding to a local news outlet.
Richard is the brain behind Kimani Maruge’s movie “The First Grader” a movie that he invested so much energy ,commitment and money but reaped nothing thanks to Kenyan investors who are more into real estate than in film and also not getting enough industry support.
