Public Story
The Noble Kebab shop

The story about a roadside grill in the north of Ghana.

Nabila is the owner of the "The Noble Kebab shop". He is funny and cheerful and despite the distinguished name in all its modesty the grill consists of a severed oil drum, which is used as a drive-by grill. But "business is lucrative" as he says, not only financially, but also creates a large network. The grill becomes a means that reaches beyond the immediate financial gain. An active way to be involved in the community - as he puts it, "When the big story is to be told about unemployment i have something to pose... I have reduced unemployment in Kumbungu". A sympathetic story about daring to believe in oneself and look ahead. 

The film was part of the project The key is not to blink.
