“Rafiki” director Wanuri Kahiu is enjoying the time of her life after her film was given a standing ovation in Cannes Film Festival.
Word also has it that the popular director has now been signed to Hollywood management and production company The Gotham Group.
“Wanuri Kahiu is a prodigiously talented and brilliant woman,” said Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, founder and CEO of The Gotham Group.
“As an advocate for Africans, especially young women, Wanuri has established herself as a major cultural force. That she refused to edit Rafiki in any way to avoid the Kenyan ban is a testament to Wanuri’s courage and commitment to her creative vision.”
