Light Within the Cracks, a film set in the Kibera Slum in Nairobi, Kenya, the largest urban slum in Africa is a gripping portrait of resilience, hope and empowerment. Filmed in cinema-verité style, the documentary follows the daily lives of young people who struggle to survive, but resolve to overcome the poor draw they got in the lottery of life. Light Within the Cracks explores the synergy between Kenyans and the foreign volunteers who team up with them to fight poverty, and the uplifting results that come about through this connection.
