Dinka Translation—A Fashion Short (2013)


Katungulu Mwendwa's designs are modern and edgy with an almost ethereal quality and are distinctly grounded in her rich African heritage. Three women play the waiting game in this moody treatment of the designer's pre-fall 2013 'Dinka Translation' collection. One of eight films created for Chico Leco Presents.

Official Selection: 2014 Mercedes Benz Bokeh South African Fashion Film Festival.
Nominated for Best Cinematography Award.
