The Time For Story Is Now | Mugambi Nthiga | TEDxParklands

vor 1 Monat

Working as an actor, director and screen-writer, Mugambi reflects on the lessons he has learned and invites us to recognize the importance of sharing our stories Mugambi is an actor, writer, director and ad man. His career began in the
Nairobi theatre scene in the early 2000's, where he worked on a range of stage plays and musicals. When he found himself jobless in America during the 2008 recession, he joined Philadelphia’s acting scene, appearing in independent stage plays and short films. On returning to Kenya, he landed principle roles in M-Net’s Pan-African TV drama ‘Changes’ and in the celebrated Kenyan films ‘Nairobi Half Life’ (2012) and ‘Stories of our Lives’ (2015).
He then went on to co-write the award-winning feature films Kati Kati (2016) as well as 'Supa Modo' (2018), which was awarded the ECFA Award for Best European Film For Children. He is currently in post-production of his directorial feature film debut, 'Lusala', which premieres in June 2019. Mugambi is also part of Kenya's premiere improv
show, Because You Said So, which hosts sold-out shows every two months. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
