Zambia gets its first feature film on Netflix

An “emotional” coming-of-age drama about a child with albinism will become the first Zambian full-length film to be shown on Netflix.

Can You See Us? directed by Zambian filmmaker Kenny Mumba, follows a young protagonist as he navigates “bullying, tragedy and cautious hope” as a result of his genetic condition.

People with albinism can have pale skin, white hair, short sight and a sensitivity to light.

Can You See Us? had its general release in 2022 and was screened in the “best feature film” and “best cinematography” categories at the Zambian film festival.

Can They See Us? was also hailed by Zambia’s President Hakainde Hichilema, who called the tale “gripping” and emotional”.

Just last month, another Zambian production, Supa Team 4, became the first original African animation series to be released on Netflix.
