New Kenyan Superhero Movie, LEO

Indiewire has an article on new Kenyan superhero movie Leo:

Directed by Jinna MutuneLeo, as Bunmi at A Bombastic Element succinctly puts it, is “a film about a Kenyan boy dreaming of becoming a comic book superhero… Though the boy ends up realizing he is a different kind hero.

The film’s website has this as an official synopsis:

… a charming and beguiling adult fairy-tale set in Nairobi, a Metropolitan City in Kenya that is a melting pot of East African culture, art, politics and commerce. It is a story about Maasai boy, raised in a low-income home, achieving his dream against all odds.
LEO film is a simple story that captures the essence of a child’s heart still open to all the posssibilities of achieving his dream in “Kenya” Africa.

This looks absolutely brilliant! Here’s the trailer:
