Akuol De Mabior

South Sudan

Akuol de Mabior is South Sudanese, grew up in Kenya and was born in Cuba. She has directed three short films: Tomato Soup screened at the Durban International Film Festival (2018), Reel Sisters of the Diaspora in New York (2018), and the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles (2019), Ihlazo screened at the Shnit Worldwide Short Film Festival in Cape Town (2018) and Fall into the Sky screened at the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa in Cape Town and will be screening at Shnit and Reel Sisters. Believing that the perspectives of African women are undervalued, she aims to create counter-hegemonic stories for the screen that reach African audiences, facilitate our imaginations and encourage us to think differently about ourselves and our futures.
