This is captivating - of course the content, but also the style in which it's made, and the approach the activist/filmmaker takes to tell his story, and shed light on the cause he's fighting - the lack of community/public spaces in largely poor urban areas, all over the world.

In his own words:

My Name is Upendo Hero and I am from Nairobi, Kenya. I am a public space superhero reclaiming our spaces with the most potent power; the power of love.

A selection of the Africa in Motion Film Festival 2012, and Film Africa, London 2012, watch the 20-minute short film below.
