Kenya's award-winning film Supa Modo by director Likarion Wainaina, and co-produced by the producer of the German director Tom Tykwer, arrives in theaters this Friday, July 10, and does so by motivating the world of Spanish comics.
Three Spanish illustrators and cartoonists, Natacha Bustos, Marina Vidal and Xulia Vicente, have been inspired by Know how to recreate the story of the girl in the movie in three different scenes, winking at the world of superheroes that Jo dreams of.
For Natacha Bustos "despite playing a sad subject it reflects it in a very optimistic way with a lot of light, while transmitting the entire environment of Kenyan culture that is rarely seen in theaters." Xulia Vicente also highlights the light and humor and how the environment turns, in such a difficult situation, "how the cast that is choral helps to capture the girl's voice." Marina Vidal is attracted to Jo's relationship with her older sister, and also the camaraderie, hence her drawing of a scene with the other children in town.

Jo, a nine-year-old girl, is crazy about action movies and dreams of being a superhero. Her greatest wish is to shoot a movie and star in it. Thanks to his imagination, he forgets that he is in the terminal phase of a serious illness. Her sister can no longer bear to see the smiling Jo spend her remaining time in a bed and encourages her to use her magical powers. By the way, he convinces the whole town to make the girl's dream come true.
