In a celebration that transcended borders and brought together global visionaries, the recently concluded A MAZE Festival in Johannesburg emerged as a vibrant hub for pan-African games and playful media. At the heart of this creative convergence was Studio Ang's director and visual artist, Muchiri Njenga, who captivated audiences with his short film, "Kichwateli," and an insightful talk.
"Kichwateli" served as a cinematic exploration of pan-African identity and tradition, showcasing Njenga's artistic prowess. The film's screening was not merely entertainment; it was an immersive journey into the complexities of the African experience.
Njenga's thought-provoking talk delved into the fusion of art and technology, emphasizing the profound impact of storytelling in the digital age.
