Hailing from the townships of Zimbabwe during the turmoil of the Civil War, Sunu’s career path reads more like a movie than real life. His sporting abilities enabled him to travel and study, resulting in a degree in Organizational Psychology from the University of Cape Town. Despite a promising banking career, Sunu’s dream of filmmaking soon took over. Within three short years, he received several prestigious directing awards for commercials such as Nike and Coca Cola, while his short film, Riding with Sugar, was screened at Cannes. In 2006, Sunu landed his first feature directing assignment with Lionsgate, Pride, which tells the true story of Jim Ellis (played by Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard) – a black swimming coach who transformed the lives of troubled inner city youths in Philadelphia. Sunu returned to South Africa in 2013 and quickly picked up where he left off, directing commercials for high-profile brands such as Standard Bank, Vodacom, and South African Breweries. His One Source music video with Khuli Chana for Absolut won Gold, two Silvers and a Bronze at Cannes Lions in 2017. It also won 11 Loeries, including two Golds, and was the most awarded campaign at The Bookmarks.
