Supa Modo is the latest collaboration from the One Fine Day Films (Germany) and Ginger Ink (Kenya), whose edgy, idiosyncratic and warmly spirited films (including Nairobi Half Life and Soul Boy) are always well received at the festival. With director Likarion Wainaina at the helm, we are introduced to Jo, a witty 9-year-old girl who loves action films and dreams of being a superhero. However, Jo is terminally ill and instead of flying through the sky and battling crime, she is taken back to her rural village to live out the rest of her short life. Her only comfort during these dull times is her superhero dream & a dream which her rebellious teenage sister Mwix, her overprotective mother Kathryn & and indeed the entire village of Maweni & think they can fulfil with a little inspired genius. This moving drama was created as part of a master class hosted by the German-Kenyan production cooperative and is a moving tribute to the power of collective imagination and the connectedness of small communities.
