Toni Kamau

KENYAN FILMMAKER MAKES THE CASE FOR THE STORIES OF OUTSIDERS, REBELS, AND CHANGEMAKERS.

Peabody, IDA, & PGA-nominated producer Toni Kamau is setting the records as the youngest female documentary producer to be invited to the Academy. Toni taught us about Sheng ( a slang language originating from the mix of Swahili and English),. In her latest film Softie, Toni humanizes and captures Boniface Mwangi the infamous political activist from Kenya in a point of view no one has ever seen before, her process of unlearning and unpacking the effects of the western gaze in storytelling, being a part of the first tv show to tackle human rights topics like; the LGBT, land, socioeconomic issues in Africa, and the impact of putting African stories on the much more global screen.
