Mandera Bus Attack Movie Produced by German Hamburg Media School, Released

  • A trailer of the 2015 Mandera bus attack movie is out. The film titled Watu Wote was produced by Hamburg Media School, a film school in Germany.

    The film was created after the brutal attack which saw armed Al-Shabaab militants ambush the bus travelling from Nairobi to Mandera town.

    The movie was inspired by the fact that Muslims onboard protected Christians when the terrorists sought to separate them and kill the non-muslims.

    Watu Wote was recorded in Nairobi, Mwingi and Magadi and it features Hollywood stars, Feisal Ahmed and Barkhad Abdirahman who starred in the movie Captain Phillips.

    Kenyan actors were also featured in the movie with local directors and producers playing a part in the production. 

    Watu Wote will premiere at the end of April this year.

    During the bus attack, the Muslims stood by the Christians and even dared the militants to either kill them together or leave.

    "The locals showed a sense of patriotism and belonging to each other by insisting that the Al-Shabaab should kill them together or leave them alone," Deputy County Commissioner Julius Otieno stated after the attack.

    This act made headlines locally and internationally inspiring the German film school to create the movie.

    Here is the trailer:
