“Pumzi”: Stop taking your dream suppressants – the soil is alive

Preview from PUMZI a Short film directed by Wanuri Kahui and showing at the Sundance Film Festival

The film started as a joke. A friend and I pondered the possibility of living in a place where we paid for air. We invented the city, the virtual natural museums, the people. That was over 2 years, many tears, much frustration and several re-writes before the film was ready to go into production. At some point, the Universe (with help from Kisha Cameron) conspired and introduced me to the Producers of the film and it was a perfect fit.

  1. I love Wanuri’s work. She is an icon in Kenya and we must try and make such for ourselves.

    Kudos to her and all Kenyans involved.

    Much Love.
