‘Picturing Independence: A Positive Revolution’ is a year-long production initiative to create a group of short films that celebrate the Sierra Leone of yesterday and today. As a country Sierra Leon [celebrated] its 50th Anniversary of Independence on April 27th 2011. The films are being created by a group of young Sierra Leoneans who are a part of a film/video collective called WeOwnTV (which roughly translates to “Our Own TV” in Sierra Leonean Krio).
As of this posting, they are just $324 away from reaching their $15,000 goal, and have just 28 hours to do so. Watch the video below for their story, and if you can, follow the Kickstarter link in the widget box underneath to chip in!
