Cabin Fever / Afro Prairie Film Festival: Supa Modo

Sun, Feb 23 / 1 pm
Free Admission!
Directed by Lukarion Wainaina
2018, Germany/Kenya, 74 mins
English, Kikuyu & Swahili with English subtitles

There will be free stop motion animation workshops offered by Art City one hour prior to the screening.

Obsessed with Jackie Chan and action films, nine-year-old Jo dreams of being a superhero, but time is not on her side. When the doctors reveal that she is terminally ill, Jo leaves the hospital and returns home to be with her mom and sister. While her mom insists that she stay inside and rest, her sister has different plans. With the entire village’s support, they decide to make dreams a reality and turn Jo into the superhero they know she is.


What started as a dream in 2005 has blossomed into an annual rite of passage for parents and their kids. They can shake the snow off their boots and spend an afternoon at the movies for free every Sunday throughout January and February. The popularity of this series, aimed at children 6-12, means that families with children will be seated first. We appreciate your cooperation.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Assiniboine Credit Union, this screening is presented as part of the Afro Prairie Film Festival.

Enchanting and inspiring...A delightful debut, Supa Modo is a celebration of life, friendship and the family bonds that can never be broken.
