aol 10

With an astounding 16 Festival Selections, 13 Nominations and 7 Awards, within just 4 Months from its Premiere, ACT OF LOVE has also won the Nile Grand Prize for Best Short Film, at the 13th Luxor African Film Festival in Egypt!  And is only the 2nd Short Film from Kenya to win an Award there, after TITHES & OFFERINGS in 2019; and the 6th Film overall from Kenya.

This comes just 2 Weeks after winning Best Short Film and Best Scriptwriter at the inaugural Mombasa International Film Festival.

And to Celebrate, the Cast & Crew shall be joining the 2nd #WeWatchKenyan Watch Party by MyMovies.Africa™, on Friday 29th March 2024 (6.00pm-10.00pm), at OUT Reality in The Mall (Basement), Westlands.

On-hand in Egypt to receive the Award was the Director – Eric Mwangi, who said: “Winning at Luxor has been incredibly affirming as a Creative.  Even though the Film was screened with Arabic subtitles, its power was unchanged.  It’s a blessing to see people who don’t speak your language, resonate with the same measure as my people in Kenya.  I believe that’s a testament to the universality of our Film.”

Inspired by the Writer – Shelly Gitonga’s true story, ACT OF LOVE (16+) is a moving Short Film, set in Nairobi, about Juliana (Mwixx Mutinda) – a young Mother, who holds on to sanity by a thread, as her world is turned upside down in search of a livelihood.


“ACT OF LOVE is a Film that makes society acknowledge the ugly side of Motherhood”, says Ms. Shelly Gitonga – the now Award-winning Scriptwriter.  “Statistics show that Post-Partum Depression (PPD) affects 10-20% of Women globally; but in Africa, the situation is worse, with 10-32% of Women suffering from PPD.”

ACT OF LOVE also won Best Short Film at the 9th MASHARIKI African Film Festival in Kigali – Rwanda, during November 2023; following Runner-up for Best Kenyan Short at the Under Our Skin International Film Festival for Human Rights in Kenya in Nairobi, during November 2023; following-on from winning the People’s Choice Award at the inaugural Sauti Zetu Film Festival in Dar-es-Salaam – Tanzania, during October 2023.

And on International Women’s Day, three Cast & Crew from the Film are Nominated for 5th Women In Film Awards (WIFA), in Nairobi; namely:  Shirleen Wangari (Best Newcomer Producer in Film), Mwixx Mutinda (Best Actress in Film) and Vivian Njeri (Best Costume Designer).

“In Kenya, the prevalence of this Maternal Mental Health challenge is reported as 11-13%, affecting the well-being of Mothers, Newborns, Families and Communities”, says Ms. Shirleen Wangari, the now Award-winning Producer, at Blackwell Films.  “The condition can impair a Mother’s ability to care for her Child and, in extreme cases, can lead to post-partum Psychosis, Suicide and/or Infanticide.”

To-date ACT OF LOVE, has also been Selected for the prestigious 2023 Zanzibar International Film Festival (ZIFF) in Tanzania, 2023 Swahili International Film Festival & Awards in Kenya, 2023 Fragments Festival in the United Kingdom, 2023 Kugoma Film Forum in Mozambique, 2023 Fankeenna Film Festival in Somaliland, 2023 Hollywood African Cinema Connection (HACC) Film Festival in America, 2023 Global Film Exhibition in America, 2023 Botswana International Film Festival, 2023 Mombasa International Film Festival in Kenya, Kenya Film Commission’s Reel County Film Festival 2024 and 2024 Kitale Film Week pin Kenya!


“We are so Proud of the Cast & Crew of this beautiful Film”, says Ms. Trushna Buddhdev-Patel, Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer & Content Director of YAKWETU™ – the Distributor.  “As well as having ACT OF LOVE worldwide on our own MyMovies.Africa™”, the Film is also now Available for Licensing to other Video On Demand (VOD) services, Television and Non-Theatrical opportunities like Airlines, so that as many Africans and Diasporans as possible, can watch this important Title.”

“We have begun special Screenings to underserved Communities of Women and Healthcare Workers around the Kenya and Africa, to raise further Awareness and spark Conversations for supportive Action on Post-Partum Depression, Maternal Health and Mental Health”, says Ms. Chloe Genga, Impact Producer at LightBox Africa.  “And we’re open to Collaborating with any Partners who share our Vision”.

ACT OF LOVE was Produced by Blackwell Films, in conjunction with Ripple Productions, through Funding by Some Fine Day Pix, GIZ, Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation & Development of Germany and DocuBox East Africa Fund; with Support Naomi Mburuh Films, Film Studios and Jenga Leo.


Notes to Editors:



After losing her job at a restaurant, Juliana downsizes to a one-roomed house in an informal neighbourhood.  Her luck turns when she is shortlisted for an interview, by a top accounting firm!  However, before she can leave her house, the landlord – Mr. Mutisya (Dennis Musyoka), gives her a final notice to pay her rent arrears the same morning.  Then, her neighbour – Mama Mukami (Veronica Gatuguta) – who had promised to watch her 2-month-old baby, has a campaign engagement for a local politician.  Sister Magdalene (Julisa Rowe), despite being sympathetic to Juliana, cannot allow her to leave the baby at the church, due to a ‘pandemic’ of mothers abandoning their children in the compound.  Undeterred, Juliana beats the clock and makes it for the interview – her upset baby in her arms.  A sequence of events, triggered by her baby’s cries, makes Juliana lose her promising interview.  Broken, frustrated, and holding onto sanity by a thread, she questions her love for her baby.

Balancing Acts: How Chiropractic and Functional Medicine Harmonize for Whole-Body Wellness



4 Common Conditions That Can Be Treated With Chiropractic Care

In the ever-evolving healthcare landscape, the pursuit of whole-body wellness has led to integrating diverse approaches. One remarkable fusion that stands out is the harmonious combination of chiropractic care and functional medicine. In this article, we will explore the synergies between these two modalities, unveiling how their balancing acts can create a holistic approach to health, promoting well-being from the inside out.

Chiropractic Care: Aligning the Foundations

At the core of Active Edge Functional Medicine’s philosophy lies the conviction that optimal health is intricately tied to a well-functioning spine and nervous system. Practitioners at Active Edge Functional Medicine specialize in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disorders, utilizing manual adjustments to realign the spine. By prioritizing the attainment of equilibrium in the body’s structural foundation, Active Edge Functional Medicine aims not only to alleviate pain and enhance mobility but also to tap into the body’s innate ability to heal.

Functional Medicine: Unraveling Root Causes

Functional medicine takes a broader approach, seeking to uncover the root causes of health issues rather than merely treating symptoms. This discipline recognizes the interconnectedness of various bodily systems and embraces a holistic perspective on health. Practitioners in functional medicine conduct comprehensive assessments, considering factors like genetics, lifestyle, nutrition, and environmental influences to formulate personalized and all-encompassing treatment plans.


Harmonizing the Balancing Acts:

Comprehensive Health Assessment:

The fusion of chiropractic care and functional medicine allows a more profound understanding of an individual’s health. By combining the structural insights from chiropractic care with the holistic perspective of functional medicine, practitioners can conduct a comprehensive health assessment, navigating the intricate connections between bodily structure and overall function.

Addressing Root Causes with Structural Harmony:

While functional medicine excels at identifying root causes, adding chiropractic care enhances this approach by focusing on structural harmony. This synergistic combination aims to alleviate symptoms and correct imbalances, promoting optimal function and overall well-being.


Optimizing Structural Health for Holistic Wellness:

Chiropractic adjustments are pivotal in enhancing spinal alignment and nervous system function. When seamlessly integrated with the principles of functional medicine, this synergy optimizes structural health and the individual’s holistic well-being, promoting mobility and overall physical function.

Personalized Lifestyle Recommendations:

Functional medicine often involves personalized lifestyle modifications. Integrating chiropractic care into this wellness plan enhances these recommendations by promoting structural harmony. This combination supports individuals in adopting healthier lifestyles, contributing to overall well-being.

A Comprehensive Approach to Pain Management:


Chiropractic care has long been acknowledged for its effectiveness in managing musculoskeletal pain. The fusion with functional medicine principles offers a more comprehensive approach to pain management by addressing structural and functional aspects. This integrated approach can lead to sustained relief from chronic pain.

Conclusion: Balancing Acts for Holistic Wellness

The harmonious blend of chiropractic care and functional medicine symbolizes a balancing act contributing to a holistic wellness approach. By combining insights into the body’s structural foundation with a comprehensive understanding of its functional intricacies, this integrated approach creates a harmonious framework for optimal health. The balancing acts of chiropractic and functional medicine empower individuals to journey toward lasting vitality and well-being, embracing a holistic view that transcends conventional healthcare boundaries.
