Tanzania Scores its First Netflix Film Release with ‘Binti’

Must Read

With the tagline, It’s not easy being imperfect, Tanzanian film studio, Black Unicorn releases its debut feature film out into the world. Binti, a drama, is about four women who are unknowingly connected by their ability to persevere through extreme hardships in the city of Dar-es-Salaam. Their stories intertwine in the film, which hits Netflix from Friday, January 7th. It’s a coup not only for the production company, which was created by two sisters, but for the Tanzanian film industry too – since it’s the first film from the country to be shown on the streaming network giant.

And it’s been an imperfect journey to get to this stage. “We have dealt with so many obstacles, including post production in different countries during a pandemic, just to be seen, and this is only the beginning,” Angela Ruhinda, who co-founded the production company with her sister, Alinda, told OkayAfrica.
