Our photo and video series “When We Are/When We Are Not” was exhibited in Hamburg in July, where Sunny Dolat was in attendance to represent us. Sunny also had a showcase featuring our soon-to-be-released fashion book “Not African Enough”, and was part of a session together with Lamine Kouyaté/Xuly Bët that discussed battling stereotypes about African fashion, and the drawbacks of emerging trends such as increasingly fast fashion.
Our Head of Production Njeri Gitungo and Sunny Dolat represented us as part of the Kenyan delegation that went to the 2017 edition of the Durban International Film Festival, where three of our films - Homecoming, Stories of Our Lives and To Catch A Dream – were screened as part of the festival’s Focus on Kenyan Filmmaking.
Also screening was our VR short film – Let This Be A Warning – as part of the New Dimensions VR showcase. Njeri and Sunny took part in key discussions around opportunities for South Africa and Kenya to partner in film co-production and the various opportunities available in the South African industry for Kenyan filmmakers.
