A film about how public art is key to post conflict community building.


Who We Are:
Ashley Beckett (Producer): Focused on sustainable post-conflict development in Sub-Saharan Africa with a Masters in International Development from the University of Pittsburgh. Ashley is a traveler extraordinaire, spending extensive time in Europe, Australia, East Africa and Central America.

Laura Asherman (Director): Documentary filmmaker based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Laura developed a "Storytelling" degree at Emory University by combining writing and film majors. She has spent time in Tanzania, Israel, Dominican Republic, and Europe, and will soon be teaching English in Southeast Asia.

Mike Morgan (Director of Photography): Atlanta native and freelance videographer. Mike studied film and video production at Georgia State University. He has a strong desire to combine his fervor for travel and apt eye for cinematography. His travel experience includes Southeast Asia, Europe, and tours around the United States with his surf rock band.

The Plan:
Travel to East Africa for 4+ months to film artists who create in communities that have been gravely impacted by violence. Ashley will arrive in January for pre-production, including meeting with artists and community figures with which we have been in correspondence. Mike and Laura will arrive in February to begin filming. We will follow 1 to 2 artists for 3 months, discussing their roles in the community and how their art contributes to social change.
