    • Synopsis
    • Produced by Kenya's The Nest Collective, creators of the 2014 Festival selection Stories of Our Lives, Tuko Macho is a procedural crime thriller that follows the kidnappings carried out by the titular terrorist cell.

      Run by a ruthless vigilante named Biko, the Tuko Macho organization snatches up criminals from the streets of Nairobi and puts them on trial before the world's most powerful public court — the internet, whose anonymous viewership decides whether the offender should live or die. Starting with a petty carjacker and proceeding to perpetrators of more ethically complicated crimes, Tuko Macho weaves an intricate web of moral questions that examine current issues in Kenyan society.
