Turkana: Race for Resources

A forgotten desert community grapples with the consequences of a big oil find on their land. From the passionate young activist campaigning for a seat at the table to the community elder fearing the end of life as he has known it to his son who is convinced the oil can bring the progress and investment the region has been desperately waiting for, Turkana: Race for Resources observes the battle for the soul and the future of Kenya’s great northern desert country.
