Organisers of the prestigious Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards can pat themselves for a job well done for an admirable job organising the 6th version of the annual awards show.
The crowning of the night was the announcement of Phoebe Ruguru’s ’18 Hours’ as the Best Overall movie, a fitting tribute to an event that featured many other Kenyan winners.
On this countdown, we list some of the directors we have eyes on, for 2018.
Jade Osiberu’s “Isoken” milks a very familiar plot but the magic is in the execution. She is smart and intelligent from pre-production to post-production, she is quite the triple threat, Jade writes directs and produces “Isoken” and her DNA is all over this project. Isoken enjoys strong themes of feminism, love, and societal resistance. Isoken is Jade’s cinematic resistance to societal pressure. It resists the pressure for marriage.

ISOKEN tells a story of self-discovery of a single and successful 34-year-old woman. It’s a coming-of-age romantic dramedy that explores culture expectations, racial stereotypes and the bonds that unite families touching, dramatic and comedic ways.
