a great Kenyan find... from political to humourous 3D animation

In 2009 - the A3 Genesis Event screened a program of animations that were both local to Kenya and other African countries. Hot off the press, this was the first time political animation "The Greedy Lords of the Jungle" was screened locally(British Council) to a local audience. It later screened at the Durban FIlm Festival in 2009. It resonanted on many levels not least because it followed the still very recent post election violence. A recent search for this animation led to the discovery of what now appears to be a company based in Nairobi, RECON Digital, working on other 3D Computer Generated animations. The new "Domestic Disturbance" is a great addition to their portfolio...
