Independent Documentary Productions

 

There is no better, more powerful way to place your subject or cause on international agenda than with a documentary

Documentaries are among the most valuable forms of content delivery – but so far a totally undervalued and neglected form of educational art.

They aren’t all good obviously – depending on who produced it – but the best of them are intriguing, unusual, persuasive, seductive…

And offer a real experience – filling some of the void left by the pretentiousness of social media – and restrictions of television reporting.

Docs focus on serious subjects which affect all human life, attracting a large audience for certain subjects ranging from the disappearance of honeybees to the effects of Monsanto’s forceful presence and poison in drinking water.

As authentic journalism has been hard hit with the advent of social media – documentaries are filling a vacant space and supplying much needed information which not only keep audiences informed but sometimes allow them to take action.

Docs subsist at the intersection of education, contemporary culture, journalism, film narrative and entertainment – aiming to to interpret or analyse but most of all to capture human experiences, inform audiences, and tell stories of empowerment or deceit.

In their attractiveness docs can seem more real than reality – capturing the deeper essence and bring to light which otherwise would not have been known.

Until the lion learns to write, the hunter will remain the hero of the story.

Africa’s lions are rising: their roars are getting louder – and soon they will write.


“To be African is to be inspired by culture and to be filled with undying hope for the future,” – Designer and TED Fellow Walé Oyéjidé

Personhood in the African setting is ‘earned’ through an on-going process of incorporation. To be, to exist, means to be so for the community and for the other, with the self emerging from relationship with others and the natural environment. The human is thus never alone but in constant communication and communion with others animals and nature; in a permanent listening to the pulse of the world and in close contact with the universe.
