ZIMBABWEAN filmmaker, Steven Chikosi has vowed to continue telling the African story from an African perspective after getting international recognition for his film “White Yet black,”.

The production was voted the Best Documentary feature at the Silicon Valley Africa Film Festival in the United States of America.

The multi-award-winning filmmaker is back home after winning big at the Silicon Valley Africa Film Festival in the United States of America.

His film “White Yet black,” which focuses on the plight of Africans with albinism and the stigma that still plague them, won an award for the Best Documentary feature.

“It was a huge thing to be recognised and telling that story on that platform was amazing for me. To be acknowledged among other African filmmakers was humbling,” said Chikosi.

Chikosi is elated to be among a host of Zimbabweans flying the country’s flag high on the global stage.

“A win for any Zimbabwean is a win for us all. Let us give more meaning and context to our story. As long we focus on the human story there will always be a story to tell,” he said.

The Zimbabwean filmmaker is taking the latest award as motivation to continue telling the Zimbabwean and African story through film.
