The Keewu Production label was created in 2012 by Alexandre Rideau. Based in Senegal, Keewu’s activities extend across French-speaking countries.

Alexandre Rideau, founding member and director of RAES (African Network for Education, Health and Citizenship) since 2005, has developed a network of international partners with the production of cutting-edge media projects. Alexandre has worked with NGOs and organizations in the public and para-public sectors to produce audiovisual content focused on health and education.

Additionally, Keewu is partnered with 9 African film schools.

Finding and training African talent is at the heart of Keewu’s activities, to produce stories from the continent that shed light on present-day issues faced by its audiences.
