The Children Of The Noon

A beautifully intimate portrayal of coming of age in a Kenyan orphanage

The Children Of The Noon Daily routines mark time for the children of Kenya’s Nchiru AIDS orphanage. Delving into the minutiae of their burgeoning lives, it is soon clear that amid their cheerful patter, death lurks in the shadows, as they cope with the loss of parents and friends and the exhausting struggle against HIV. A beautifully composed film that quietly grips its audience with a moving exploration of coming-of-age in rural Africa and the impact of HIV/AIDS.
