Screenings: Homages Extra – Keith Oleng, Dec. 7 2012 @ Goethe
Keith Oleng studied Theatre Arts at the Kakamega High School, Mass Communication at the Central TAFE College in Australia, and specialised in filmmaking at the New York Film Academy.
His nurturing as an artist started while he was in high school. Being a member in the theatre arts club, he became chairman in his final year. It was in this environment that he first learned about directing a production.
Keith founded a communication firm in 2008 while still in Film School in New York. It is called Africa Is A Planet, and deals mainly in Audio-Visual production, Creative Event Organisation and Internet Solutions.
Keith makes works that push the form of media, with a goal of developing an African inspired culture. The major themes of his work are beauty and exploration.
In this retrospective, Keith is going to present his short films, and will launch his latest work Love, Taken to a Mysterious Place.
