Broken Mirror is a fictional film inspired by the Garissa University attack in 2015. However, we refrained from depicting the attackers as Muslim, because Islam does not equal terrorism,” said Whitney Namwaka.

In the film, a bright student who dreams of raising her Parents out of poverty and alcoholism, Caro (Sandra Gaturi) falls in love with Scar (Sam Adino Arlcons) – who works at a Carwash but desires the life of his clients. Scar, and his workmate – Oti (Andy Joseph), are recruited by a Terrorist Group to Attack the University that Caro attends. Will he go ahead with it? Check out the next iHub screening.
