Ng'endo Mukii is an award-winning filmmaker based in Nairobi. Her work explores issues of identity and how socialised perspectives affect the way people relate to each other. Through short films such as Yellow Fever and This Migrant Business, as well as photography series such as The Travelogues and Untitled Labour, she uses multiple mediums and plays with the representation of reality through the mix of live-action, animation, printmaking, and photography.

In her lecture, Mukii will analyze the effects of existing beauty ideals regarding skin complexion and discuss racial politics and the historical representation of 'the Other' in media. How has this affected the Western perspective on 'The Other,' and indeed The Other's perspective on him/herself.

Everyone welcome!
