Wanuri Kahiu In Post-Production On Ger Duany Documentary, 'Ger: To Be Separate'

A documentary she’s apparently been working on for about 2 years now, but I’m only just now learning about it…

Kenyan director Wanuri Kahiu (probably known mostly for her Focus Features Africa First sci-fi short film Pumzi) is in post-production on a documentary titled Ger: To Be Separate, which chronicles South Sudanese actor, model and social activist, Ger Duany’s journey from child soldier, to refugee, to Hollywood actor, and international model, and his amazing journey back home as he votes for the first time for a new Sudan and celebrates its division.

The release of the documentary will mark the beginning of Ger’s mission to help rebuild his country, bringing back education and healthcare facilities.

Some of his onscreen roles include work in I Heart Huckabees, The Fighter and Restless City; although he’s probably better known for his work as a model. You may have seen him featured in various fashion campaigns.

I’d expect Ger: To be Separate to debut on the film festival circuit in 2013.

He's very versatile. The video gives off a strong, confident swagger, while the still shots just scream Grace Jones. Interesting……He has overcome more than most people can even fathom.

Just whow. Im sitting here crying at work. It is truly emotional to see what people go through but when men show there journeys and stories like this it just gives me hope. Seeing his mother after 18years that a long time. They all agreed that their vote was important and that is the icing on the cake for me.
