The First Grader DVD
Directed by Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl, Bleak House), written by Emmy Winner Ann Peacock (The Chronicles Of Narnia) and starring Naomie Harris (Pirates of the Caribbean), The First Grader is the triumphant true story of one man's battle to overcome his past in order to be educated. When the Kenyan government promises free education for all, 84 year-old Maruge (Oliver Litondo in his debut role) makes his way to a remote primary school in the Kenyan bush to get himself the education he has always been denied. A former Mau Mau warrior, fifty years earlier he fought for the liberation of his country and now he must fight for his right to learn to read and write in a class of six-year-olds. Full of humour and vitality, The First Grader uncovers the shocking untold history of British colonial rule in Kenya and tells the remarkable, inspirational story of one man's determination to learn in the face of adversity.Special Features Making The First Grader: Incl Interviews With Naomie Harris And The Man Who Inspired The True Story Maruge, What Happened Next: Maruge's Journey To The Un With Actionaid
