‘Softie’ nominated for Peabody award

The documentary tells the story of Boniface Mwangi’s activism


Softie has been nominated for a Peabody Award. The Peabody Awards take place every year. Each Peabody Award is given in the categories of entertainment, documentary, news, podcast/radio, arts, children’s and youth, public service, and multimedia programming. Softie is nominated alongside 18 other documentaries including Disclosure, Crip Camp and Kingdom of Silence to mention a few.

The film by Sam Soko details the life of Boniface Mwangi as a human rights and political activist. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival early last year where it won “The World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Editing.”

The film opened in theatres across Kenya, last year, giving Kenyans the opportunity to watch the documentary. The film has already received amazing reviews from critics around the world including a review by Shadow and Act that lauded the film for its boldness.
