Kenyan artist Ng’endo Mukii’s thesis film made at the Royal College of Art 2012, focuses on African women’s self-image and esteem. Mukii’s mixed media animation is a result of using her own memories and various interviews she conducted.
This film searches a modern take of Ng’endo’s documentation of the topic with observations from her niece, her own perceptions and experiences and some history that uncovers the depth of this parallel thought.
Ng’endo will be participating in a talk at the CinemAfrica festival on 17th February 2013. She will be holding the discussion along with Akosua Adoma Owusu who we have also featured here.Find out more about the CinemAfrica Sweden event Finding Her Roots here.
