Price: £8/ £6

Jo, a witty 9-year old terminally ill girl is taken back to her rural village to live out the rest of her short life. Her only comfort during these dull times are her dreams of being a Superhero, which prove to be something her rebellious teenage sister Mwix, overprotective mother Kathryn and the entire village of Maweni think they can fulfill.

The story idea for Supa Modo was first introduced to the Producers of One Fine Day Films and Ginger Ink by Likarion Wainaina in January 2017 during a script development workshop. Four writers, namely Mugambi Nthiga, Silas Miami, Wanjeri Gakuru and Kamau Wandung’u, successfully took on the challenge to come up with a script that was to be shot just five months later in July 2017.

This screening will be introduced by writer Wanjeri Gakuru, who is a freelance journalist, essayist and filmmaker living and working in Nairobi. Wanjeri co-wrote both Supa Modo and the pilot of TV drama series, Country Queen (2019-). Her directorial debut, the mockumentary short film, How to Get Laid is scheduled for a Kenyan release late summer 2019.  In 2018, Wanjeri was appointed Managing Editor of Pan-African writers’ collective, Jalada Africa for who she served as Festival Producer during the Collective’s inaugural Jalada Mobile Literary and Arts Festival covering Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, DRC and Rwanda (2017).

Africa Writes – Bristol endeavours to hold its events in venues that are accessible to all. Events in The Cube are amplified but there is no loop system. There are toilets for public use.

However, due to the historic nature of The Cube building access can be difficult for wheelchair users and those with severe mobility issues due to the many steps required to access the venue, and between the various different levels inside.  The Cube are also not legally permitted to accommodate wheelchairs in the auditorium due to its small size, and the fact that all entrances and emergency exits involve rather steep stairs for access.  If you have concerns or questions about your access to the venue then please contact africawritesbristol@gmail.com.
