WHEN I SAY AFRICA

WHEN I SAY AFRICA follows a young American volunteer questioning her mission to help in Africa, and a Kenyan photojournalist whose activism blows apart the notion of need.

Turning the lens on the West’s imaginary Africa, from the sketches brought back by the first European adventurers to the news and pop culture images that inspire modern voluntourists, the film challenges the myths and motives that continue to drive popular representations of Africa.

WHEN I SAY AFRICA (formerly titled FRAMED) is currently in post-production for a 2019 release.

"The film looks at the dynamic and asks a simple question: Who exactly are we trying to save Africa from?" - Colorlines
