Nakupenda (I Love You)

Hi8-SD │ Stereo │ 2015

After discovering over 30 hours of family home video, I began to look back on my family’s history, their leaps of faith, and my own life as I struggled to move on from the school where my parents met in the 1980s.

“Nakupenda” was how my parents would sign their love letters to each other. It means “I love you” in Swahili.
