Director
Artist

Justice Nnanna is a Nigerian-American multidisciplinary artist and director. He graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and studied theatre at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London.

Nnnanna's work is predominantly inspired by non-fiction, and explores ways of seeing social-political experiences. He is interested in discovering the cross-cultural effects of globalisation, and using non-verbal methods of communication to comment on the contemporary human experience. His work during his mid-twenties has centred around understanding the African diaspora.

In 2019, Nnanna’s work showed at the UN Women's Council, the Brooklyn Film Festival, the Chale Wote Street Art Festival in Accra, the Red Bull Music Festival in Los Angeles, Artspace in Connecticut, the Block Museum of Art in Chicago, the New York University Forum for Health in Theatre in NYC, and the Lagos Biennial in Nigeria.

In 2019 he won a SIMA (Social Impact Media Award) for his short documentary Megolonyo: With a Mother You Are Rich. Megolonyo tells the story of Konye Ki Cingi, a Ugandan Women's Empowerment Group, started by female survivors of the Northern Ugandan War.
