100 Word Review: Yellow Fever pushes for dull admission not reversal of ideologies

Title: Yellow Fever

Genre: Documentary

Director: Ng’endo Mukii

Year: 2012


Yellow Fever contends the uncomfortable issue of African women’s comfort with their skin colour. A vital message and distinct feature of the documentary. Another admirable feature is the beautiful blend of elements such as animation, poetry, narration and immaculately artistic dance to show coordination in thoughts and depth of message. Where the documentary fails is that the poetic part of the narration sounds too mundane and seems disconnected from the narratives. More importantly, the documentary fails to grant a resolution to the issue raised as it inadvertently pushes for dull admission of facts rather than move for a reversal of ideologies.
