Empowering students with voice and vision.
By Nduduzo Msibi:
“If a man walks a thousand miles through a desert; barefoot, without food nor water, and finally arrives at a destination where he onlyfinds one serving of toxic food and poisonous water, his struggle is admirable and must be applauded; but whether that struggle was actually worthwhile is a different yet all too important question.”
We teach filmmaking to children at schools, as a complimentary course to the curriculum, or as as an extramural at schools.

This is a film course that encourages kids to make an investigative short film on a family that lives a very different life to theirs – economically different, from a different religion or from a different race. They are encouraged to go beyond the obvious and find both the similarities and differences in their lives.
Human Rights/Citizen Journalism
This film course encourages students to make a film on a human rights issue that they are aware of. It must be something that they have heard of or something that they know of and see daily. In this course they begin to learn research skills and human rights sensitivities as a journalist.
Facilitators: Our teachers are all experienced and award winning filmmakers who have taught film and mentored filmmakers that have gone on to become fully fledged filmmakers.
