The First Grader

Director: Justin Chadwick
Cast: Oliver Litondo, Naome Harris

In a small, remote mountain top primary school in the Kneyan bush, hundreds of children are jostling for a chance for the free education newly promised by the Kenyan Government.
One new applicant cuases ashtonishment when he knocks on the door of the school.  He is Maruge, an old Mau Mau veteran in his eighties, who is desperatge to learn to read at this late stage in his life.  Supported by the head teacher but facing opposition from parents and officials, The First Grader is a heartwarming and inspiring true story of one man’s fight for what he believes is his right in order to overcome the burdens of his past.  It is a triumphant testimony to the transforming force of education.
