This week DesignChat is on location at Rule29 talking with Justin Ahrens and other members of the R29 team. Justin tells us about his new book, Life Kerning, and Rule29’s latest documentary, This is My Normal. We get to see the trailer for the first time and learn about what went into the making of the film.


…on some of R29’s fantastic work and the very moving trailer for This is My Normal.

Description from R29’s blog, written by Bob Davidson

This past April, both Justin Ahrens and myself, alongside our friends Brian MacDonald (Wonderkind Studios), Von Glitschka, Kelsey Timmerman, Bruce McEvoy and the Life in Abundance team, had a chance to shoot our second documentary project in Africa entitled “This is My Normal.” This film explores two primary questions: “What is poverty?” and “What is normal?” These questions are explored through the stories and imagery of the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. In particular, the film focuses on the people of the Mathare Valley – a section of the Mathare slums, often referred to as the “Forgotten Valley.”
