Hot Sun Foundation attracts many international visitors. One of the most enthusiastic of our recent visitors was Caroline Goodall, internationally known as a leading actress who has starred in blockbusters including Schindler's List (1993), Hook (1991), Cliffhanger (1993), Disclosure (1994), White Squall (1996).

Kevin Kiarie, a KFS trainee wrote the following comments about Caroline Goodall's visit:

It was 11th May 2013 on a Saturday morning. Kibera Film School was a beehive of activities.  Everyone was excited to spend a day with Caroline Goodall.

 Caroline showed us some of her films. The films were really amazing. From her work in acting she advised us and said that filmmaking is not about moneymaking but passion is everything. That has been her driving force all along.

 Her seriousness and humor was coupled with her great personality.  I think that the video of her visit to Hot Sun Foundation would make a scene in a movie!

 Caroline promised to help connect Hot Sun Foundation to the outside world after seeing the amazing work done by Kibera TV.

 Caroline  was overjoyed with her visit and promised to come back again.

 Thank you Caroline for a memorable visit.  We will never forget you!
