Voices of the People

My friends from We Own TV put together a trailer of footage from their summer workshop in Lungi, Sierra Leone.  When Banker first showed me the beginning clip in his studio, the beauty of the shots and their emotional power gave me the shivers.

While infrastructure development is underway, and stories of returnees from Europe and the US start to surface, I think that this kind of initiative to promote public expression from all sectors of society, will be what truly brings Sierra Leone out of a post-war period, and push it into the thriving prosperous country it has the potential to be.
