Uplifting Kenyan Drama “The First Grader” Will Be Released In USA Theaters This Spring

The First Grader, a Kenyan film we’ve written about a few times already on this site, is getting a theatrical release in the USA.

National Geographic, who also picked up and released Desert Flower here in the USA, will release The First Grader on May 13th, in a limited theatrical release.

The film, directed by Justin Chadwick, and staring Brit Naomie Harris and Oliver Litondo, centers on an old villager, who insists on attending school so he can learn to read, inspiring others around him to realize that it’s never too late to dream.

MsWOO saw it at the London Film Festival last fall, and reviewed it. You can read her lukewarm thoughts HERE.

Watch the trailer for the film below:
