Film director and Film producer

What we do

We are sisters from Kenya who make films with a passion for telling stories that matter, with a human interest angle that is innovative, interesting and relevant.

Our milestone moments

Having our feature film project, Hawa Hawaii, set in the Swahili community of Mombassa, get selected to participate at the Sundance Director’s Lab in 2018 was huge for us.

Up next

We’re hoping to get the financing and momentum to get Hawa Hawaii made in the next year or so and then use the project as a collaborative and mentoring project for young and up-and-coming filmmakers and film technicians in Kenya.
