Kenyan Filmmaker Shoots Athlete Themed Movie, Chep

A new film titled, Chep, directed and written by Jinna Mutune.

The film follows Chep, a determined athlete whose one dream is to be a world marathoner.

Set in the 1970s, the fictional drama will capture the history of Kenyan running, from the early beginnings of the long distance running supremacy. Being a time when female runners were almost unheard of, a young aspiring runner Chebet -- the lead character of the film -- triumphs over prejudice and hardship to challenge a tough environment and become a female world marathoner.

Jinna is famed for her African superhero movie, Leo that starred media personalities like Jeff Koinange and Chris Kirubi.

'Chep' will be released in May next year.
