My first feature-length film!
Katie Taylor, a Los Angeles casting director leaves her quickly growing career behind in order to teach filmmaking to youth in an impoverished South African community. Originally intending solely to equip them with employment opportunities, she quickly discovers the therapeutic impact on her students as they process life events through their films. Despite the community being resistant towards art and film, the school expands to a second community, and an additional college level program. Emerging from a wide range of social backgrounds, the students find themselves bridging cultural barriers as they become united through filmmaking. Film School Africa exemplifies the power of storytelling within both the individual and the community.
