“The More Things Change”, or TMTC for short, is a fiction anthology feature film from the Nest Collective 2 years in the making, slated for release this very month!

The film was made in partnership with Forum Civ, as part of the Wajibu Wetu program. TMTC has been described as a slow-burn, cerebral, dramatic thriller.

It boasts the unique narrative of looking back into Kenya’s political past, and then exploring the present, as well as imagining an exciting potential speculative future, to explore resistance by individuals and communities. Co-directed by Collective members Akati Khasiani and Mars Maasai, the film explores what happens when an ordinary girl takes on a powerful adversary at great personal cost.


TMTC is proud to present leading talent Nyawara Ndambia as its star.

A fiery performer of great flexibility and power, Nyawara was most recently seen in the highly acclaimed Kenyan comedic drama Supa Modo, where she starred as the beautiful, determined and assertive Mwix.

TMTC also features several other Kenyan stage, TV and film actors of note! These include Melvin Alusa (Mission To RescueCrime and JusticeThe First GraderThe Boy Who Harnessed The Wind), Bryan Ngatia (Too Early For Birds), Emmanuel Mugo (Sense8Pillow TalkThis Is Life) and young luminary Stycie Waweru (Supa ModoJust In TimeLusala).


“We’re really happy to be so close to the release, after many months of work from so many talented people. We can’t wait to see how folks will react!” said Njeri Gitungo, the Nest’s head producer.
