Biography

Ng'endo Mukii is an award-winning film director most well known for ‘Yellow Fever,’ her documentary-animation exploring Western influences on African women's ideals of beauty.

At the prestigious Design Indaba conference she presented her talk, ‘Film Taxidermy and Re-Animation,’ proposing the use of animation as a means of rehumanising the ‘indigenous’ image; a people whose ‘real’ image is burdened with stereotypes of being the ‘Other.’

Ng’endo is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, and holds a Master of Arts in Animation from the Royal College of Art. She is an alumni of the beautiful Berlinale Talents, the distinguished Urucu Media REALNESS Screenwriter’s Residency, and the incredible Goethe Institute Bahia Vila Sul artists’ residency.

She is a writer on Netflix’s Mama K’s Team 4 series, and is one of 10 directors selected for the upcoming Disney+ and Triggerfish animated anthology, Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire.
