Amil Shivji is based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, his homeland, as a freelance filmmaker. He believes Filmmaking is the strongest medium for bringing about social change by confronting social and political injustice. He has always felt the pull of media having experience as a news reporter and a radio host now as a filmmaker. Neocolonialism, cultural and political imperialism and Palestinian solidarity have been at the centre of his activist and media work. He is particularly interested in using his work to challenge historical and contemporary misrepresentations of the African continent. His short film “Shoeshine” has received worldwide recognition and picked up many accolades on the way. He is about to release his second short film – “Samaki Mchangani” (Fish of the Land) which addresses land grabbing in Tanzania.
