Brother Time is a tale of neighbors from different tribes caught in a wider conflict. After the last presidential election, Kenya erupted in ethnic violence. Most of the 1500 killed lived in the Rift Valley, where members of different groups had lived peacefully. Like many others, the two friends fell apart during the post-election period, when suddenly, it was ‘not the brother time’. Filmed during and immediately after the election, the roots of tribal conflict are explored during a journey through the Rift Valley. One who saw the worst of the conflict returns home to see his neighbor, while interviews with Kenyans reveal the political and social causes of violence. Released during the 2013 election campaign, this message of hope shows it can be Brother Time once again.
