The most important super hero movie you’ll see this summer.

 Nine year old Kenyan, Jo, is obsessed with superheroes. Despite receiving a cancer diagnosis, Jo refuses to feel sorry for herself. Her passion for superhero movies draws her rural community close, and together they set out to make her the star of her village's very own superhero movie. And, action! A superehero needs a costume. A superhero needs super powers. A superhero needs adversities to overcome. Jo's neighbours pull out the stops to bring her superhero to life, working together for the joy of filmmaking, understanding the bittersweet reality that Jo's big screen debut may also be her last.

A charming window into rural Kenya, the film rejects conventional portrayals of grief and death, instead celebrating the joys of life’s small pleasures. Heart-warming, insightful, and affirming, Supa Modo is as colourful as its capes and costumes.

“A love letter to the power of escapism, a devastating portrayal of grief and a Kenyan family drama that defies stereotypes, Supa Modo serves as an important reminder that even when heroes die, they can continue to inspire others long after they’re gone.”
