Kenyan actor Kevin Ndege Mamboleo famed for his role in KTN’s Changing Times is featured the South African produced film Inside Story.
The film won the Special Jury Recognition in the Feature Narrative category at the 20th Annual Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles.
Kevin plays Kalu, a gifted footballer who moves from rural Kenya to urban Johannesburg to follow his dream and support his family. His path becomes more challenging when he falls in love with the coach’s daughter, Ify (Kendra Etufunwa), and subsequently finds out he is HIV-positive. Newcomers Mamboleo and Etufunwa (Jacob’s Cross) are joined by international stars including Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Hotel Rwanda, 24) and Fana Mokoena (Blood Diamond, Hotel Rwanda).
Directed by Rolie Nikiwe (Tsha Tsha, The Lab, Intersexions), Inside Story is a truly pan African project – produced by Curious Pictures South Africa, filmed in South African and Kenya and featuring actors and actresses from across the continent. The film also distinguishes itself by combining a compelling narrative with realistic CGI animations that take the viewer into the body to demonstrate the science of HIV in a personal, practical and memorable way.
