Luxury brand Maiyet commissioned Cary Fukunaga to shoot this video for its fashion campaign, and it is gorgeously filmed. However, for some, it clangs because of the “White People in Africa” romantic trope. (You can see a critique of it on the website, “Africa Is A Country“.) Myself, I have mixed feeling about the video, as it provokes intense nostalgia of my many years in Kenya.
