Gingers portfolio includes eight feature films, two documentary features, and a flock of short films. Three of the features, Nairobi Half Life, Kati Kati, and Supa Modo, were Kenya’s first three entries into the Oscars. The slate has won numerous awards from the Berlinale to the AFI, to an Academy nomination, to Best Film at the EFCA. Fishing Without Nets, a Somali pirate film told from the perspective of the pirates, was the winner Best Director at Sundance Film Festival.
Ginger puts the creative first, staying within parameters of budgets that are either embarrassingly large or embarrassingly small, and are in constant need of adapting to a challenging production environment.
Her body of work is evidence that creative international partnerships can produce high quality African content that engages with a worldwide audience.
Ginger has two high end TV series in development, the scope of which do not have precedent in the region. She says that now is a tipping point for this scale of content, as producers around the world face the demand for international stories that cross cultures and resonate with how we got here, and who we all are, right now.
