Jenn Nkiru is a British-Nigerian filmmaker, born and based in Peckham. One of London’s most exciting and visionary rising artist and film director, she has steadily been creating a name for herself with her distinctive visual style and powerful use of sound through her short films for the BFI, Condé Nast, Channel 4 and the Tate.
Her dreamlike piece titled 'Rebirth Is Necessary', commissioned by Nowness, is ‘a personal powerful exploration of blackness’ and is a winner of the 2018 Canal+ Award. This video also has been qualified as video-art exploring the magic and dynamism of Blackness past, present and future through jazz, hip-hop and afrofuturism.
Her most recent music video for Swedish artist Neneh Cherry has received a buzz for its visual image making and nominations at the 2018 UKVMA's.
