UK director Cecile Emeke is currently raising funds for her upcoming projects. Check out what she has to say + more info below. Support indie Black voices!
Ms. Emeke told us: "We are currently launching a crowd funding campaign to support two projects that you may have already seen featured on Afropunk: "Ackee & Saltfish" and "Strolling". Ackee and Saltfish is a short film about two hilarious best friends Olivia and Rachel, which we are turning into a web series. And Strolling is an online documentary series where we go on a stroll with seemingly ordinary people who have some profound insights about life and various social issues; we talk about everything from microagressions against black women, to gentrification and monarchy. We are raising money for three main areas:
1) Equipment: that's cameras, lights, sound and crew.
2) Travel: to help allow us to take strolling outside of the UK and give a voice to all parts of the African diaspora.
3) Events: to allow us to put on accessible screening events & discussions, similar to that of our latest successful event in London that sold out with 400 people coming out to participate.
