Runtime: 90'

Thank you for the Rain, screening, Ciné-ONU LuxembourgOver the last five years Kisilu, a smallholder farmer in Kenya has used his camera to capture his family life, his village and the impacts of climate change. He has filmed floods, droughts and storms but also human costs. Following a storm that destroys his house, Kisilu starts building a community movement of farmers fighting the impacts of extreme weather and he takes this message of hope all the way to the UN Climate Talks in Paris, COP21.

"It is the greatest injustice of our time and age that those who did nothing to cause climate change are first and hardest hit whilst we who have done most to cause the greenhouse effect are hit last and least”. Jan Egeland, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, 2003-2006

The film will be introduced by Nick Nuttall, Director of Communications and Outreach at the UNFCCC It will be followed by a Dialogue with Carole Dieschbourg, Minister for the Environment, moderated by Dr. Christopher Lilyblad - Additional information on the film: http://www.luxfilmfest.lu/fr/films/thank-you-rain
