A fight for climate justice.
Over the last four years Kisilu has used his camera to capture the impacts of extreme weather on his family and village in Kenya. He has filmed floods, droughts and storms, and the way they force men to leave their families behind in search for jobs. Travelling to Paris to present his footage to delegates at the UN Climate Talks, Kisilu finds himself on the biggest political journey of his life.
