Writer, Producer, Director.
Wanjiru Njendu is a filmmaker of Kenyan descent based in Los Angeles. Her creative imagination earned her the nickname 'Magic' at a young age. Wanjiru’s film credits include several short films, including award winning Look Again and Boxed currently doing the festival rounds, and below the line credits on TV. She is working on getting her first feature film made. She directed the red carpet interviews for Women In Film’s 5th Annual Pre-Oscar party, a live taping of the SAG-AFTRA /Women In Film Q&A panel for the film MISSRepresentation as well as the purple carpet interviews for the 2012 Variety/Women In Film Pre-Emmy party.
Her African and American upbringing influences her approach as a writer and director for film and television enabling her to have a versatile voice in both African stories and Western stories. This versatility led to her being chosen to participate in the 2013 Producer's Guild of America Diversity workshop.
