Why is it?
That many youth living in urban slums in East Africa continue to aspire to be filmmakers despite the fact that there are little or no opportunities for them to learn filmmaking?
We at Hot Sun Foundation have been working with talented youth in East African urban slums (also known as "informal settlements") for many years.
We know that many many youth, female and male, aspire to be filmmakers but there were NO opportunities for them to get hands-on training to do so.
With your support, Hot Sun Foundation offers the opportunity for many urban slum youth to become filmmakers!
Listen to what Douglas Mwangi has to say
When did you first think of becoming a filmmaker
Frankly, I can't say there is a time I ever thought of becoming a filmmaker for the first time because I have always seen the world in terms of pictures.
I have always wanted to capture every moment of it, so I feel I was born with a desire of wanting to be a filmmaker.
