When Bono edited the Africa issue of Vanity Fair, it included an essay written by Kenyan Writer – Binyavanga Wainaina. Through that, they became aware of another piece he’d written for Granta a number of years ago called “How (Not) to Write About Africa.”
Director Jesse Dylan and his company FreeForm worked with Binyavanga and the Beninois actor Djimon Hounsou to create this filmed performance of the essay. Thanks to W Hotels for the location and Kenyan musician Ayub Ogada for the music.
