Profiling Anurin Nwunembom – Ultimate
Who is Anurin?
Anurin is a Cameroonian Actor, Assistant Director, Director, Filmmaker and Screenwriter, based in Buea, South West region of Cameroon.
He was born Anurin Nwunembom in Tiko in the late 1970s to a single mother.
Because of the nature of his mother’s job – a nurse, he had to live with his grandmother for about 3-4 of his childhood years. It is during this time with his grandmother that he was exposed to storytelling.
He describes himself as a self-taught filmmaker and actor/acting coach. He writes poetry too and loves deep arts and craft. He is greatly fascinated by African and Asian cultures.
The first time Anurin decided to venture into the movie industry was in 2007-2008, that was when he wrote and directed a short film titled “Two girls.”
In 2010, he was opportune to take part in “Ninah’s Dowry,” a movie which won about 40 awards internationally.
In 2014, he was approached by Nkanya Nkwai with a film titled “Nightfall.” They worked on the film together and that was his first feature.
After featuring and directing a couple of other movies, he went on to direct two Cameroonian movies purchased by Netflix: Broken and Therapy.
