NEW MOON (2018)
Experimental filmmaker and photographer Philippa Ndisi-Herrmann embarks on a journey that takes her to the stone town of Lamu on the northeastern coast of Kenya, where a gigantic port project and coal plant threaten to disrupt the rhythms of life. We watch as the filmmaker confronts a new spiritual awareness and commits to a path of self-discovery. Ndisi-Herrmann's visual poetry and richly textured imagery communicate the intangible aspects of spirituality.
