The First Grader, a Kenyan film we've written about a few times already on this site, and which received a limited theatrical release in the USA in May via National Geographic, grossing a healthy $332,000, is now available for sale and rent on DVD.

Released today, December 27th, the film was directed by Justin Chadwick, with Naomie Harris and Oliver Litondo in starring roles. It centers on centers on an old villager (played by Litondo), who insists on attending school so he can learn to read, inspiring others around him to realize that it's never too late to dream.

MsWOO saw the film at the London Film Festival last fall, and reviewed it. You can read her lukewarm thoughts HERE.
