Democracy... illusion or reality? 
KURA, which is a Swahili word for VOTE, is an animated short film about some of the issues Kenyans have had to consider regarding their Electoral Process and the Democracy it is supposed to serve. It is the eve of a General Election and disturbing happenings have given the nation cause to question the system. Amidst very uncertain circumstances, the incumbent Head of State grapples with the burden of leadership, that ultimately requires him to make some tough decisions.
