Kenya, 2008, 79 min.

From a Whisper commemorates the 10th anniversary of the terrorist bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi in August 1998, in which over 250 people died and more than 5,000 were injured. The film focuses on the aftermath of the bombing and its devastating effect on the lives of the indirect victims who were forced to learn how to move beyond the tragedy that shattered their lives. The film reveals how the lives of the victims and perpetrators are intertwined, while Tamani, an angry and rebellious teenage girl whose mother was listed as missing after the bomb blast, struggles to come to terms with her own motherless identity. Winner of Best Director, Best Film, and other honors at the 2009 African Movie Academy Awards in Nigeria. In English and Kiswahili with English subtitles.
