JUST A BAND (IN PRODUCTION) - DIRECTOR/PRODUCER/ CAMERA

In Nairobi, Kenya, four twentysomethings drop out of university to form an art collective, creating a counter narrative to the lives expected of them. Little did they know they would end up becoming one of Kenya’s top bands and ride a wave of international acclaim.

How do they deal with it? They go to Space.

Borrowing on a post-modern cultural mishmash of Sun Ra, Kung Fu movies, Hip Hop and a thousand other bits of detritus, “Just A Band” paints a truer picture of urban Africa than you can imagine.

The film (in production) is supported by Cinereach, the Hot Docs Blue Ice Group, Worldview and the Britdoc Puma Catalyst Award.

The feature-length film is co-directed by Wanuri Kahiu. Our Executive Producer is oscar- winner Morgan Neville.

JUST A BAND IS A FRACTIONALLY-FICTIONAL FILM ABOUT AN AFRO-ELECTRIC-POP GROUP THAT WANTS TO GO TO SPACE.
