In the empty spaces we cannot claim as our own, in forests full of smoke and beneath waters dappled with bougainvillea, two women and a man wrangle. Each must hollow out the other’s core for fruits promised but only ever borne, in dreams. For this is Nairobi, the place we call home.
for my first foray into virtual reality IMMERSIVE ENCOUNTERS GRAND PRIX I wrote, directed, shot and animated, NAIROBI BERRIES, (2017) which is Kenya’s first 360 Virtual Reality film incorporating animation and live-action. Nairobi Berries was created with a NEW DIMENSIONS grant from ELECTRIC SOUTH (South Africa). The trailer is above. I am super grateful to have received the very first filmmaking.
