Forget all the hollywood films about Winnie and Nelson Mandela (propaganda) that do not in anyway reveal the true story of white supremacist rule in South Africa and the heroes and sheroes that helped to fight for justice and freedom. For the first time ever see the critically acclaimed 1986 documentary on the lives of Winnie and Nelson Mandela without the frills, mis-education, white washing and mis-information that is always found in hollywood blockbuster movies.

MNM presents a powerful documentary about the history and Islamic legacy of West Africa.

From great Muslim African leaders like Mansa Musa, who raised Timbuktu to new heights, to Abubakari II, who crossed the Atlantic Ocean to America nearly 200 years before Cristopher Columbus - this critically acclaimed documentary explores African history like never before.

Yellow Fever (short film) is an interested concept of skin and race, and what they imply; in the ideas and theories sown into our flesh that change with the arc of time. The idea of beauty has become globalised, creating homogenous aspirations, and distorting people’s self-image across the planet. In my film, I focus on African women’s self-image, through memories and interviews; using mixed media to describe this almost schizophrenic self-visualization that I and many others have grown up with. -Best Experimental Short Film, Black Star Film Festival, USA August 2014 -Best Short Film, AfriKamera Film Festival, Warsaw, Poland April 2014 -3rd place in the Documentary Category, 2nd Afrinolly Short Film Competition, February 2014 -Best Animation, This Is England Film Festival, Rouen, France November 2013 -Best Student Film, Underexposed Film Festival, SC, USA November 2013 -Silver Hugo for Best Animated Short, 49th Chicago International Film Festival, USA October 2013 -Special Mention, 59th Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, Germany May 2013 -Best Short Film, Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, Lagos, Nigeria March 2013 -Best Animation, 7th Kenya International Film Festival, Nairobi, Kenya November 2012 -Africa Movie Academy Awards, Bayelsa, Nigeria April 2013 Nominated for Best Short Film Award -Colours of the Nile Film Festival Addis Ababa, Ethiopia November 2012 Nominated for Best Short Film Award -Encounters Short Film Festival Bristol, UK September 2012 Nominated in The Nahemi Student Film Awards More :

The film was shot in Kilamba Kiaxi, a new city built outside Luanda, Angola. The city was built by Chinese construction company CITIC and financed by Hong Kong-based China International Fund. The new city is to be home to more than 210 000 people, and is the single largest investment project by China in Africa. The film’s narrative follows a young municipal worker who lives by night in the old city center of Luanda and works by day as a groundskeeper at the new city of Kilamba Kiaxi far away.
