Imani – Ugandan Film Director Caroline Kamya Interview

Imani – Ugandan Film Director Caroline Kamya Interview

May 05 21:34 2011 Visitors ~ 9,526 views Print This Article

Imani vibrantly captures three vignettes of life in modern day Uganda: A child soldier returning to the parents who could not protect him, a woman fighting to get her wrongly accused sister out of jail, and a youth dance troop leader struggling to simply get through a hometown performance. These seemingly disparate stories slowly fuse into a profound singular narrative as the characters reveal themselves to be uniformly off balance in their own lives, and the world around them. Caroline Kamya’s fast and confident directing effortlessly makes the most of the beautiful Ugandan setting. With a rich and varied soundtrack, and the restless energy of the dancers it follows, Imani sprints by at the pace of a far less substantial film. Kamya’s unadorned approach to her characters and the film’s straightforward and unflinching script, provide an intimate exploration of characters who will likely remain far from resolution for some time to come.

    Carol I’m glad you can film such a high profile movie… I’m a script writer who has written my own called “Asylum beyond borders. It’s basically about the RPF and one patriotic leader who saw his native country being torn apart by racial segregation pioneered by colonialists. The Rwandan people got divided on ethnic lines that some of them moved outside their country in search of places to live. those who managed to reach Uganda met different government discrimination but the patriot joins Uganda’s two armed struggles that led to the overthrow of president Idi Amin and then in 1986 that brought in the NRM… It was lesson he borrowed and together with some of the Rwandan soldiers in the NRA went to liberate their own country with an idea of uniting the people like they were before the colonial gov’t. The story is interesting and gives lessons to both Uganda and Rwanda. I need someone to produce it. I’ll be glad if you read this and reply to me using my email address or contacting me on face book by the names given above… Thank you.
