We are honored to be joined by Maia Lekow and Christopher King, the directors of the breathtaking documentary The Letter. 

The Letter follows Karisa who travels from Mombasa back to his rural home when he finds out that his grandmother has been accused of witchcraft. It turns out the threats and accusations aimed at his grandmother are coming from his own family members. 

The Letter has been selected as the official Kenyan submission to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Feature. 


You can watch this gripping film at the New Orleans Film Festival until November 22nd. Visit for tickets.
