In 10 days with only $10,000, Adam Costanza and Matt Costanza went to the most brutal slum in Africa to make a documentary. The relentless hope within a community contrasts with the brutality of a city built on garbage. With no sanitation, only a handful of public water spigots for nearly a million people, this film shows how the people of Mathare live, and how they bleed.

This short movie is an atypical documentary. Emphasis is placed on a first person’s experience of the slum, while graphics and sound design are purposely avoided. It is meant to be an ethnographic style film.
