Changing Fortunes for Kenyan Filmmakers
Films are not only pieces of creative expression, but they are also tools of communication and raising awareness, and a way of calling for social change.
In Kenya, film not only provides income-generating opportunities, but it also enables social development by providing a safe, creative space for new voices and ideas.
A fact that motivated Ronald Mwarogo, 28, to found Gift Payne Productions, whose movies are airing on Maisha Magic and Maisha Swahili on both DStv and GOtv.
The Malindi based film-maker Mwarogo alias Gift, is riding high on the wave of his newest movie, Dzimene: The Spell of Death. The movie is a time period thriller exploring Giriama culture.
