ABOUT THE FILM
They call themselves “Survivors”: Kenya’s new generation of displaced youth. Cut off from their traditional villages, huffing Tough Bond glue to endure the hell of street life.
Tough Bond follows four children living in an urban wilderness where family can only be found with their fiercely loyal “survivor” gang. Together they brave violence, hunger, and AIDS without a community or a government to protect them. Raw and unflinching, Tough Bond emerges from slum alleyways and villages gripped by decay to deliver an alarming portrait of life in modern Kenya.
Directed by Austin Peck, Anneliese Vandenberg
Produced by the Village Beat, and Executive producers Sam Citron and Brian
