Kinyanjui’s student film A Lover & Killer of Colour was made during her studies at the dffb and screened at the Oberhausen Film Festival in 1989. The film’s soundtrack, a lyrical poem, configures acts of expression – a pen writing on a white page, a paintbrush meeting a white canvas – as metaphors for confrontations with white supremacy.
