Tough Bond, named after a commonly huffed adhesive, is a new documentary about four homeless children in Kenya who band together in a family. It looks devastating. The film was shot, directed and edited by the non-profit, California-based film collective Village Beat, with an original soundtrack by London/Malawi’s The Very Best and Nigerian-born Seye. The documentary premieres at the Berlin International Film Festival on February 13th, where hopefully it’ll secure distribution, because it looks likes a serious must-see. Watch the extended trailer above, then below, stream a song from the soundtrack and watch a 2011 video for Shabazz Palaces that uses footage from the film.
