Nasir Gwangwazo: screenwriter
Nasir Gwangwazo, screenwriter Waraka and Rubutacciya—which are on HIV. Among his other credits are films like like Sarmadan, Sanafahna and the upcoming Kambun So (which from the trailor looks like a historical epic). When I asked him if he had written any novels, he said he has been working on one, but there is more wahalla in a book than there is in a screen play, because with a screenplay the diretor has imput, the producer has imput, etc, but for a book, it's the sole responsibility of the writer. So, writing for film, therefore, seems to be a more collaborative and communal process.
