Telling contemporary narratives through film.

African Face, Colonial Tongue

In our globalized world we grow closer to each other and share more common values. But we also lose some distinct individual traits like language. Serati grew up with the colonial language of Queens English. 

The film takes you on her search for origin and the mother tongue of her parents and ancestors.

Currently in post production.
