Robert Mudenge

Non Union

Robert Mudenge, a passionate storyteller from Rwanda, discovered his love for narrative from a young age. His journey into the world of acting began with childhood renditions of Jean-Claude Van Damme movies, charging friends candies for entry. At 17, Robert and his family relocated to Canada, where he overcame language barriers through an intense immersion in movies of all genres. His debut in theater came with Shakespeare’s “Macbeth,” where he portrayed Lord Macduff, sparking a deep-seated passion for live performances.

Robert’s theatrical exploits extended to the Ottawa Little Theatre Company, notably starring in Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap” as Mr. Paravicini, a role that challenged him to explore characters beyond his own identity. This experience laid the groundwork for his transition into stand-up comedy, drawn to the immediate audience feedback and the electrifying thrill of delivering jokes. Celebrating a decade in comedy, he released his first taped special, “Daddy, Are we famous yet?”, sharing insights into parenthood.

Driven by a desire to expand his creative horizons, Robert ventured into film and television, appearing in several independent films such as “Finch,” “Because We Are,” and “Kreme.” These projects deepened his understanding of filmmaking, from set dynamics to the intricate process of post-production. Inspired to create his own narratives, Robert wrote, produced, and starred in his debut film, “Irreconcilable Differences,” which garnered critical acclaim, winning multiple awards at the Toronto International Black Film Festival in 2023.

With aspirations set on larger-scale productions, Robert embarked on his next venture, “Sins of Our Fathers.” Reflecting on his journey, Robert believes in the transformative power of storytelling, fueling his dedication to continuous growth in the craft he holds dear.
