If Films Were Children
The idea for Nightrunners was born shortly after my volunteer trip to Rusinga Island in early 2011. But it didn’t become real in my mind until we returned to Rusinga for the first scout trip in the summer of 2012. This is incidentally when Mama Benta’s granddaughter was born. And they named her Rowan.
Yesterday, I received a picture of “Little Rowan” from John Geddes. Little Rowan is not so little anymore. So it’s interesting to think that the film, Nightrunners, and the child, Little Rowan, are essentially the same age.
This is how long Nightrunners has been growing.
Kind of puts things in perspective, really.
ps – Isn’t she beautiful??
