It’s the time of year when I get to pretend I’m hard done by; slaving away in darkened cinemas, gorging on the finest films the Times BFI 52nd London Film Festival has to offer. The upside to my valiant sacrifice is that I’m a sharing kinda guy:
Working as part of the Ugandan film collective Yes! That’s Us, Donald Mugisha has created feature debut Divizionz using the technology at hand coupled with a flexible approach to traditional film roles. He joins me to discuss the challenges of bringing the film to screen in a sometimes violent environment.
Divizionz follows four youths that originally come from four different regions of the country but now live in a neighbourhood on the outskirts of the city.
