A nine minute short film, and a story about kids that try to recreate a film set identical to one they came across was last week premiered at National Theatre in Kampala.
Produced by re-known film maker George Stanely Nsambya and Ghetto Film Project “THE DUMMY TEAM” has already been pressed into film festivals in and around Uganda, and the Director says the story portrays a message that has a touch of HIV and Ghetto life an issue that has been hardly addressed.
“ am quite convinced we shall love and enjoy this production but it is ironical that the film has a strong message about HIV and down town life” George Stanley Nsamba
The Ghetto Film Project is a non-governmental organization in Kampala, Uganda that uses film to rehabilitate, empower, mentor and tell stories from the slums of Kampala.
Ghetto Film Project founded on 20th July 2013 by Ugandan filmmaker George Stanley Nsamba in Naguru, a huge slum in Kampala. In 2013, following his fast growing success in the Ugandan film industry, Nsamba decided to create an organization that would help mentor and empower youth in the community he was once known in for being a notorious kid when growing up. The organization is mainly made up of youths, kids from between the ages of 3 to 15 and a few women from the community.
The Project was founded in 2013 on 20th July 2013 by George Stanley Nsamba in Naguru a notorious slum from where he grew. On the opening day they managed to gather over 60 youth from the slum and 80 kids and women who they would take through a 10 months training in different activities and fields.
