- In the new film "Ayaanle", a Somali actor living in Nairobi dreams of becoming a star for Hollywood, but is frustrated when he is only ever cast as terrorist or a pirate.

The character, known as "Ayaanle", arguing about 'You kill' and 'Allahu Akbar'; "I just have two lines," he said, yelling - "you must kill him and kill me."

The new 90-minute film, set for release in February, follows the success of a Finnish-Somali director, and its first for three decades in Mogadishu. The newly renovated National Theatre showed the trailer of Ayaanle this week.

The story is set in a suburb of Eastleigh in Nairobi, home to many Somali families. Ayaanle is played by Somali-American actor Barkhad Abdirahman, who was in "Captain Philips" and Tom Hanks movie, and "Watu Wote" made in Kenya.

When the story begins, Ayaanle finds a sense of American accent for which he gets accused of suffocating some cops in a neighbourhood - they think that he lives abroad so that he's on his own, and has to have money.

To recoup the bribe, he impersonates an al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab insurgency in Somalia to scam $500 from a wealthy western journalist.

He's in an elite anti-terrorism unit with the same banter as his suits.

Ahmed Farah wrote the film based on fakes he saw while working as a nauseous newscamman for Channel Four. He said that some residents regularly impersonated pirates for reporters.

Farah, 43, used to shoot MTV videos. "As a result, I heard many interesting stories, stories that you hear in the ray," said Farah, 43.

Farah said that it took him eight years to write, finance and shoot the movie, which was at times a strain, so that he didn't notice as much to faint.

The film began in November 2019 due to COVID-19, but Farah ran out of cash shortly before the film started to end in 2020. The film finally started in November 2018, but only Kenya was forced to start working. The film was re-opened in 2020, but as time fell to a crisis, a massive flood of cash was brought into the Kenyan house.

As soon as they could restart eight months later, Abdirahman broke his rib in an accident, and the other actors dressed like different ones after months of lockdown, wearing new hairstyles or having put on weight.

However there were upsides, Eastleigh rallied around the movie, giving refreshments, or homes for use as sets. The police offered cars, unloaded guns, and security.

When a sex worker attempts to bail out Ayaanle, they let Farah into the local jail so he could build an replica set - that's memorably portrayed when a community elder gets propositioned by the sequin-clad sex worker.

Almost all of the crew and actors was involved in the public act, Abdirahman said, and many were nervous about public acting like terrorists - especially when police were nearby.

"They said 'if those cops have our pictures later, then they will come and interrogate us and put us in jail' - the same situation that the main character, Ayaanle, has escaped," Abdiraman told Reuters.

Farah said that is why he's so excited about the blossoming of Somali cinema - and the opportunity to show more than pirates, refugees, militants and war.

"We can always complain that the world is not telling real stories of Somalia, but its us who must tell our stories," said his father. "We need not only to speak with the world, but ourselves," said he. "We have to tell our stories.
