Shot across 16mm, VHS, DV, and Digital, Breakfast in Kisumu is a personal homage to the 20-year journey of renowned professor and political activist Rok Ajulu. Filmed across 6 countries between Europe and Africa, with a proxy-archival quality, it follows Rok’s account of his struggles as an exiled freedom fighter of the post-colonial, apartheid era. In conversation with his daughter - he tells of his numerous deportations, prison sentences, and academia. As Rok recounts the collapse of the apartheid regime, Breakfast in Kisumu shows us a homecoming; his journey back to Africa for the transition of the African National Congress (ANC) from a liberation movement into a governing party, his marriage into the Sisulu Family, and the continental significance of 1994.

Talk Loud In The Forest is a feature documentary currently in post production. The film follows a nomadic couple, Jane and Etienne, walking through the dolomites with their three donkeys and two dogs. In July 2017, while cycle touring from London to Italy to see the Venice Biennale, I was coming down the Albula Pass in Switzerland looking for somewhere to stop for lunch, when I met Jane and Etienne at a petrol station buying dog food. I agreed to join them for lunch, where they led me to a clearing in which three donkeys, two dogs and a piece of tarpaulin stood. I stayed for a few nights about Jane and Etienne’s lives; they live a nomadic lifestyle, walking everyday moving slowly across the continent.
