 Wanuri Kahiu Biography

Wanuri Kahiu is a filmmaker and co-founder of AFROBUBBLEGUM, a media company that supports, creates and commissions fun, fierce and frivolous African art.

Kahiu has received several awards and nominations for the films which she directed, including the awards for Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Picture at the Africa Movie Academy Awards in 2009. Her films have also been shown at festivals around the world.

Kahiu has engaged with Afrofuturism both in her artistic creation and in the inspiration for her work, calling for a specifically African flavor in her approach to the subculture. Drawing on the depth, power, and histories of African mythologies, spiritualities, and naturalisms, Kahiu has made the argument that African peoples and cultures have been engaging in Afrofuturistic thought for centuries, if not longer.

Kahiu has critiqued the ways in which Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) control the popular imagination of Africa. These images, Kahiu says, reconstitute Africa as the Other. Kahiu situates her work as a filmmaker making films about Africa to combat these images.
