About the movie

For a decade Kenya has been targeted by terrorist attacks of the Al-Shabaab. An atmosphere of anxiety and mistrust between Muslims and Christians is growing. Until in December 2015, Muslim bus passengers showed that solidarity can prevail.

About the director

Influenced by theatre throughout her youth, Katja Benrath pursued that career in her early professional life. She became a theatre tailor and worked for Pina Bausch’s dance company. Following, she completed her studies in Singing and Acting in Vienna, Austria where she also discovered filmmaking. Her first short films (“Babydoll”, “No one pukes in Heaven” & “Tilda”) have been playing successfully on many international festivals. During her master studies at Hamburg Media School she directed “Where have you been” and “Secrecies”. Watu Wote, her graduation project, is her first film based on a true story.
