KENYA
The short animated film Kenya's Symphony is completely engrossing. I found myself unable to look away. The main character, Kenya, is relatable and fascinating, and the story is well-plotted. The music is alluring and pretty.

The storyline is about a young girl going to a symphony and gaining a passion for music.

I like the storyline. It's engaging and fun. At times, the story could be thrilling, and the entire movie is abuzz with excitement from start to finish. The story is also extremely compelling, especially the scene where the young girl discovers a passion for music.

The 2D animation is excellent, very simple, but it fits the story. One specific shot that impressed me is the scene where Kenya first discovers her passion for music. The color scheme uses tones that accentuate the brown skin of Kenya and the mostly white skin of the musicians. The film had two sets, one outside and one inside the auditorium. The classical music drives the film. Kenya's antics as she from using a spitball gun to finally discovering her passion for the music are all well delivered. There are two main characters in the film, the mother and Kenya, her young daughter who is spunky and spirited. There is no dialogue, but lots of music, which is excellent and well chosen. My favorite part of the film is the scene where the little girl discovers her passion for music. It is so exciting and the music scoring at the moment is beautiful.

I give Kenya's Symphony 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 3 to 10. This film will play at any festival geared for youth and families and qualifies as an African-American special interest topic. Reviewed by Sandrine A., KIDS FIRST! Juror.

Kenya, a bold five-year old girl, is reluctantly dragged to a symphony by her mother. Through the power of the orchestra, the young girl's passion for music blossoms before her own eyes.
