IDA Documentary Screening Series presents ‘SOFTIE’


January 11, 2021 • 6:00 pm PST


The International Documentary Association (IDA) is bringing together both films and their creators to industry insiders and film enthusiasts from October to January. This year’s Screening Series takes place online and is accessible from anywhere in the world. Films are available on demand for IDA members exclusively. Post-film conversation live streams with filmmakers and subjects are open to the public for FREE.

Boniface Mwangi is daring and audacious, and recognized as Kenya’s most provocative photojournalist. But as a father of three young children, these qualities create tremendous turmoil between him and his wife Njeri. When he wants to run for political office, he is forced to choose: country or family?

Join Director Director/Producer/Editor/D.O.P Sam Soko, Producer Toni Kamau, and film subjects Boniface “SOFTIE” Mwangi and Njeri Mwangi for a digital conversation moderated by actress Lupita Nyong’o. Closed-captioned and ASL interpreted.
