Kenyan film Mully, premiers this Friday at the University of Nairobi
Mully, a story of rags-to-riches of Dr. Charles Mulli, a one-time Kenyan business tycoon turned founder of Mully Children’s Family. It is the largest children’s rescue, rehabilitation and development organization in Africa. ‘Mully’ is set to premire in Kenya on Friday 26th at Chandaria Hall, University of Nairobi.
Based on real events, Mully is a story of Dr Charles Mulli, whose unlikely stratospheric rise to wealth and power leaves him questioning his own existence, searching for meaning in life.
Against the better judgment of family and community, Mully sets out to mitigate the plight of orphaned children across Kenya. Jeopardizing his own life and the security of his family, Charles Mulli risks everything and sets in motion a series of events that is nothing short of astonishing.
Produced by Sterling Light Productions and directed by Scott Haze with Academy Award-Winner James Moll serving as executive producer and original score provided by Golden Globe nominee, Benjamin Wallfisch, Mully is an 81-minute documentary that premiered in Los Angeles in October 2017.
Filming of the documentary began four years ago. The movie had three launch dates in USA, October 3rd, 4th and 5th 2017 in select cinemas. It also screened in Canada and Jamaica.
The story also follows his work as an entrepreneur and the founding of Mully Children’s Family. He adopted the first child in 1989 and the homes have so far helped over 13,000 children.
The homes are spread across the country in Yatta, Ndalani, Turkana, Mombasa and Kitale. There are others in Mwanza and Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania.
The film has so far won several awards including The Man in the Mirror award and has been screened in 80 cinemas across the United States of America.
