African Film: Yellow Fever By Ng'endo Mukii

Yellow Fever is an award winning film by Ng'endo Mukii, a Kenyan animator, director and editor. The director best describes it as a documentary animation comprised of interviews where she emulates the content with the visuals.

The movie tackles sensitive yet so relevant issues like skin bleaching, to show the world how Africans go about in acquiring 'western' like beauty by telling a story on issues about Kenyan women having to create appearances to try and appear more western from their hair to skin.

Ng'endo also holds a Master's degree from the Royal College of Art in London.

 In March 2013, Yellow Fever scooped an award for best short film at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards for winning production.

This is a must watch film.
