Hi! I am James FILMMAKER, KYC.TV Trainer and facilitator

Between April and October of 2016 I had the privilege and most life changing opportunity to travel to slums and ghettos across the world to help young people make films about their communities.

Here are a few images from my journey thus far...

Cities will grow by 2 billion people in the next 20 years. In Sub-Saharan Africa, the urban population will likely double.

Nearly one billion people live in slums worldwide. In Africa, that number includes more than 70% of the urban population.

By 2030, nearly 60% of all urban dwellers will be under the age of 18. Most of Africa’s slum dwellers are between the ages of 15 and 24.

85% of the world’s youth live in developing countries, with more and more of them growing up in cities.

What really stayed with me was the impressions of hope, resilience and quiet determination that my collaborators bought to the production of our films.

Our series of films will be live soon, please stay in touch and I will keep you updated.
