Kenyan short films Influenced and Teka set to premiere on 29th June

#WeWatchKenyan with MyMovies.Africa examines life on social media versus reality.

Actor of short film Teka, Nick Olwah.

In 2024, what is Reality really? That’s the question that #WeWatchKenyan
with MyMovies.Africa shall examine, during its sixth watch party for the year, at Out Reality, The Mall (basement) in Westlands – Nairobi, on Saturday 29th June, from 6.00pm, for a 7.00pm screening and 8.00pm-9.30pm question and answer with the cast & crew.

Created by Yakwetu, #WeWatchKenyan with MyMovies.Africa™ is a monthly watch party aimed at promoting local film and content, as well as building a community of Kenyan creatives who actually watch Kenyan content.

The two short films this month, are:
Influenced: Dive into the glamorous, yet fragile, world of Ben (George Waweru) and Kay (Ciku Waithaka) – a popular influencer couple. Watch as their picture-perfect life begins to crumble during a pivotal shoot, exposing the raw emotions behind their curated image.

Teka: Feel the intensity of Amani’s (Nick Olwah) journey, burdened by debt and desperate enough to kidnap a social media influencer – Hope (Amina Hussein). Their encounter is a gripping tale of vulnerability and unexpected connection, that will leave you breathless.

“Being a social media strategist, and a film critic, this is such a perfect conversation for me to moderate!”, says Nkatha, host of Talk Film To Me podcast. “I can’t wait to watch these two films, and discuss their take on social media with the cast, crew and audience.”

“This month we’re bringing some comedy and dramedy to #WeWatchKenyan with
MyMovies.Africa.”, says Mr. Mike Strano, co-founder, chief operations officer of Yakwetu. “On our panel are some very funny stand-up comedians, who also write and produce. They are generously sharing their secrets for success, with our audience of students, professionals and fans.”
