Afrika Eye 2014

Veve 15


The latest film from the producers of the award-winning crime drama Nairobi Half Life and Something Necessary (Afrika Eye 2013). Set in Kenya, it documents the double-crossing lives of those trading in khat or 'veve', a mildly narcotic crop grown in the Meru region of the country, as they try to find themselves in a world of political intrigue, revenge, love, and longings for success. Lizz Njagah stars as the lonely wife of corrupt politician Amos, whose attempts to edge a competitor out of the khat business for his own greed-fuelled gains force her to find solace in the arms of the local bad-boy, not knowing that her new lover is intent on destroying her husband.

Ticket prices: £5.50 full / £4.00 concessions.
