 Ayoka Chenzira, Ph.D. Biography

Ayoka Chenzira is an award-winning filmmaker, a recognized pioneer in Black independent cinema, and a member of the Directors Guild of America. She is part of the first generation of African American filmmakers who helped create a genre of filmmaking now identified as Black independent cinema. Her distinctive body of work spans fiction, documentary, animation, performance, experimental narratives, and interactive cinema.

In 2018, Ayoka began directing for television when invited by Ava DuVernay to direct episode 310 of the beloved series "Queen Sugar" for OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network. Ayoka received the BronzeLens Catalyst Award for her pioneering work as a filmmaker and educator. Her early films are archived and preserved at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. In 2018, her animated film, "Hair Piece: a film for nappyheaded people," was one of twenty-five films inducted into the National Film Registry, which preserves film deemed as culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.

Ayoka is one of the first African American women to write, produce and direct a 35mm feature film, "Alma's Rainbow" (developed at Sundance Institute), and noted in Billboard Magazine's top forty home video sales list. She is considered the first African American woman animator with her animated satire, "Hair Piece: a film for nappyheaded people" and later "Zajota and the Boogie Spirit." Zajota is one of the first independent films to combine drawings, collage, film, frame-by-frame video and computer generated imagery. The film was created in part using Apple computer's first MacIntosh desktop computer.
