Kenyan post-apocalyptic drama by Abstract Omega


Directed by Daniel Muchina, who works under the pseudonym ‘Abstract Omega,’ Monsoons over the Moon is a mythical drama about a street gang known as The Monsoons who have escaped an oppressive dictatorship set in post-apocalyptic Nairobi. The gang seeks to awaken young people in order to liberate them from the system within which the masses have been placed.

The story is told from the perspective of those most oppressed by the dictatorial system that has shut down the internet, making the written word exponentially more important. 

The narrative follows a young lady from the streets whose violent boyfriend has disappeared and his rivals are using her to look for him. She feels afraid and imprisoned by her circumstances until one of her friends gives her a book which catapults her to open her mind to the understanding that she need not be afraid of what is to come because the power lies within her.

“My motivation for the script was based on my own experiences of living in Nairobi city and witnessing the grim reality that is mostly kept out of the news and swept under the rug. I was compelled with the intention to shine light to this reality.”  - Abstract Omega
