FILMMAKER AMIRAH TAJDIN TALKS GROWTH, PATIENCE, AND MAKING A MARK

A still from Persimmons + Potions 3 – directed by Amirah Tajdin

A self-described ‘artist who is currently making films’, Kenyan born Amirah Tajdin is the co-founder of the dynamic visual agency, SEVEN THIRTY Films. Back in 2014 she took part in a Connect ZA project that brought together a sharp and savvy selection of South African and UK creatives. Since then, she’s been working between Africa and the Middle East, with a long view to ‘make a mark’ on African cinema in and beyond the continent.
