K. Lentsoe Serote is graduated in mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Western Cape in South Africa. She later left her computer career to start as a freelance in filmmaking. After short films and video clips, she directed « Beyond the Picket » (2012) her first feature film.

I was born and lived most of my life in South Africa. I lived in Tanzania between 1985 and 1990. I was student at the Solomon Mahlangu Freedom College (SOMAFCO), where I did my higher primary education and most of my high school. I have completed a BSc majoring in Mathematics and Computer Science, in 1998, at the University of the Western Cape. But in 1999 I left my computer career for filmmaking.

It was as a result of being in SOMAFCO that I was exposed to not only hardship but other cultures and peoples. More so, I had the opportunity to visit several other counties (Zimbabwe, Sweden, Britain and Zambia). So, I can safely and confidently say that I am open-minded about other cultures and view points.

My hobbies are, swimming, playing chess, listening to music, drawing, writing poetry and prose, travelling, watching television and movies.
