Acclaimed artist and filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu shatters convention around African representation—by celebrating art that’s made for the joy of it. Born in Nairobi, Kahiu is part of the new generation of African storytellers, screening films around the world and receiving international acclaim. In her vibrant, optimistic lecture, Kahiu explains why showing fun is a political act, when happiness is so often seen as a privilege.
