Mukanda Model
The film by Hai Cohen

The Director, Hai Cohen, was injured in 1986 diving into a swimming pool. After a period of adjustment, he found a man willing, in exchange for boarding and a monthly salary, to help him with the daily tasks he is now unable to perform such as showering, squeezing grapefruit juice or opening presents. This man’s name is Samuel Mukanda and he has lived in Hai’s home for the past 10 years. The relationship that develops between the two can almost be compared to the one a person might have with his own hands. But at the same time it is a great mystery. Samuel was born and raised in a small village in Northern Kenya. His wife and children live in a large stone house paid for by his wages. He spends with them one month each year. Since there is no electricity or running water life there revolves around basic tasks: Cultivating corn, collecting rain-water, and cooking over an open flame. Samuel’s life includes two such different worlds, and passing between them is almost like traveling through time. He journeys between the two, motivated by a strong sense of duty.
