IMANI the debut feature film that opened the Forum Section at the Berlinale International Film Festival 2010 getting nominated for Best First Feature and has since traveled the world gaining numerous awards. This was a first for a woman filmmaker in Uganda.
iMANi is a visual feast of stunning worlds revealing the little known city of Kampala and the formerly war torn region of Gulu providing a unique perspective from this region of Africa.
The blend of popular contemporary local language acoustic and hiphop flavours, alongside traditional African beats carries the narratives, skillfully woven together to form the tapestry of both rural and urban life in Uganda today.
“Thanks to its highly convincing actors, its feel for portraying class contrast in a visual way, its unspent urban locations and its highly original use of music to aid the narration, Imani can be seen as an outstanding example of new African cinema production”.
