Natasha Ngaiza received her MFA in Film from Temple University in 2012, the same time she began her journey into motherhood. Her short narrative films have screened at various international festivals and art venues and all center Black mothers as their protagonists . Natasha’s experiences raising three multiracial daughters have strengthened her interest in race and identity and have informed her work as a filmmaker. She currently teaches film at Middlebury College and is in early pre-production for her feature film project about bananas, set in her family’s ancestral home in Northwest Tanzania.
