An Unexpected Family: Stories from a slum

In 2009, director Riyad Barmania and producers Diego Pascoalino and Christian Marion Lohr came to HHFL in Kenya to film a documentary about our work and the HHFL children. This documentary has since debuted at many film festivals and has most recently been accepted into the Online New York Festival. Grab a coffee, sit back and enjoy (it’s 45 minutes long)!
