Meet Ms. Ng’endo Mukii

Ngendo Mukiii 03

Ms. Ng’endo Mukii is an award winning filmmaker and graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (USA) and the Royal College of Art in London. Her films include Yellow Fever, Reel, Desert Haze, Untitled: Dust, and The Mask.  Her recent film, Yellow Fever is her thesis film made at the Royal College of Art (2012).  Yellow Fever examines the effects of colorism on girls and women of color.  Ms. Mukii is “interested in the concept of skin and race, in the ideas and theories sown into our flesh that change with the arc of time. She believes that skin and the body, are often distorted into a topographical division between reality and illusion. The idea of beauty has become globalized, creating homogenous aspirations, and distorting people’s self-image across the planet.”  ​In Yellow Fever, Ms. Mukii focuses on African women’s self-image, through memories and interviews; using mixed media to describe what she identifies as a “schizophrenic self-visualization” that she and many other women have grown up with.

Ms. Mukii works internationally as a freelance director and animator.  Find out more about Ms. Mukii by visiting her website and Facebook page. Follow Ms. Mukii on Twitter at: @NgendoMukii
