Recently I’ve been editing together a short film about how pollution and deforestation are affecting communities in rural Zambia. Last week I met Timothy Mgala, the director of Kamanga Dance Ensemble, who together wrote and acted out the piece.
It’s been tough work editing without understanding the language spoken, but an interesting challenge. The footage is bright and colourful, reflecting the natural beauty of the area well. Now that we’ve gone through and properly translated the improv scenes, the film is really coming together. Hopefully it’ll find a wide audience both here in the UK and back in Zambia.
