Abstract:Based on the bomb attack on the American Embassy in Nairobi in 1998. In this film, police detective Abu meets the expressive artist Tamani through graffiti she is spreading throughout the city. The movie follows Tamani, a young woman who lost her mother in the attacks, and also Abu, who's best friend Fareed was one of the bombers. 'From a Whisper', shot in Kenya, is not all about the terrorist bombing. The movie draws on the power of fiction to tell a most realistic story of the bombing aftermath by capturing the lives of the victims and their families who had to pick-up the pieces of their lives shredded by the blast.
