Global Health Film Festival: The Children of the Noon

The Children of the Noon deals with the universal subject of life.

The time passes marked out by daily activities for the group of children and teenagers in the orphanage of Nchiru, a small Kenyan village.

It becomes clear that their orphaned state and their poverty are not the only problems they share. A sudden death in the group reveals a dense web of pain, joy, friendship and hope.
