Wafa Tajdin was born and brought up in one of Africa’s busiest city’s, Nairobi. She is no stranger to the patchwork of
experiences that are part and parcel of growing up in a 21st century metropolis. A sentiment that has contributed immensely
to her choice of academic pursuits – an undergraduate degree in economics and a masters degree in media studies from the
Rhodes School of Journalism in South Africa. A passion for journalism and telling the stories that matter led Wafa onto the
path of filmmaking specifically with respect to producing human-interest stories from angles that are innovative, interesting
and relevant to Africa in particular.




Culturally disorganized Amirah Tajdin is an artist and filmmaker who confesses to having an unhealthy love for anything
remotely related to film, music, photography and art in general. She graduated from Rhodes University with a Bachelor of
Fine Art (Photography) in South Africa. Amirah was born and brought up in Nairobi, spent her teenage years in Dubai and
considers her ongoing romance with crazy cities and her mixed lineage as influences for most of her films, photography and
drawings, as well as her choice to consider everywhere and nowhere home.
