The Kenyan crime drama which was selected for the Best Foreign Language Oscar category is expected to be screened on March 21st, 2013, where the audiences at each venue will vote, after seeing the film, on whether the film should receive a one-week theatrical release at their theatre, reports IndieWire.

Nairobi Half Life follows the life of a young aspiring actor [Mwas] who leaves his hometown for Nairobi, the city of opportunity to pursue his dreams. Unfortunately, after setting foot in Nairobi he’s robbed [Nairobery] of all his money and belongings and left alone in a city that he doesn’t know anyone. However, he braves the up and downs of life with a gang in the city to survive and become successful in the lights of theatre.

Nairobi Half Life wins the Feature Film Project 

Manhattan Short and MovieMaker Magazine have selected the film as winner of the inaugural Feature Film Project

Managing Editor of MovieMaker Magazine, James Kaelan said of Nairobi Half Life: "Not only is this an incredible film about art’s hard-won triumph over poverty and violence, but it’s a film whose production is almost as transcendent as the story it tells. This is a film written, directed, acted, produced, and crewed by the same people portrayed in the film."
