Kenyan filmmaker, Phoebe Ruguru‘s new feature film, Safari, is poised to make a debut on the global streaming platform, Netflix, on April 1, 2023. This follows the movie’s World Premiere in October, 2022, at the world’s largest children film festival, Cinekid Festival, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Written by the #Forbes30Under30 filmmaker, Njue Kevin, and directed by award-winning director, Bill Afwani, Safari tells a heartwarming family adventure story as a timid, wheelchair-bound boy escapes his rural home in an attempt to experience the vibrant wild life in Kenya for the first time. It stars Victor Fadhili, Abilasha Muthoni, Victor Nyatta, Mehul Savani, and Douglas Muigal.

Safari, as shown in the official trailer video, showcases stunning visuals of tourist attractions in the East Africa country, which is famous for its fascinating safari experiences.

In 2020, the film received a seed capital of four million Kenyan Shillings for its development after the film’s producer, Phoebe Ruguru, applied to the government’s Film Empowerment Programme, a relief plan designed to cushion the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and  boost the value chain of film production in Kenya.

Since its World Premiere, the film has been met with much anticipation, and has been acquired by the German multi-network company, Rushlake Media, for distribution.

The movie is a production of Rocque Pictures Ltd, the film house behind the critically acclaimed AMVCA winning film, 18 Hours.
