    This is another brief video in a series of updates for friends and family. I am spending several months in East Africa, exploring, helping NGOs with images, AV videos and consulting with them on a variety of topics. One of my recent projects was to capture a piece of the story of a circumcision clinic operated by the Catholic Medical Mission Board at the regional government hospital in Gulu, Uganda. This was my first exposure to this type of work and I found it very interesting to understand the thinking / attitudes / motivations of the clients.

              In November of 2010 I left Canada to spend six weeks in Africa. I travelled to Uganda and volunteered at Mengo Hospital's HIV/AIDS clinic. As a New Media Journalist I chose to document the HOPE of the people. I asked for their wish for Uganda and for their wish for the World. I called my journey there: UGANDA WISHES

                      This is a short lifestyle clip from the feature film, Mothers of a Nation. Mothers of a Nation is a visual journey through rural Uganda as three women practice and preach agriculture to be the salvation of their communities. Florence, Alice, and Sarah are three Ugandan women who’s stories come together around agriculture. Each woman has seen the positive effect that growing food has had on Ugandan women in their communities and has made it their missions to spread this message, one season at a time. Mothers of a Nation focuses on three Ugandan women, Florence, Alice, and Sarah, who’s lives are united through agriculture. Their lives, once filled with desperation have transformed into ones of hope and prosperity as they take control of their destinies through agriculture, education, solidarity and entrepreneurship. Weaving between 16mm and HD, the film is an experiential discovery of the landscape of rural Uganda and the many women who work there. The film follows Florence, Sarah and Alice through their daily lives, as they teach their peers the value of the land and the opportunity it affords Ugandan women to break free of otherwise crippling social pressures and stigma. Florence has brought HIV infected women from sickness towards health, her self included. She has become a land owner, group leader, and runs a small business selling eggs and vegetables. Sarah has works in health clinics, making gardens to support the diets of the sick. She has managed to send all her children to school and buy her own piece of land. Alice travels throughout rural Uganda preaching the importance and wealth women can find in their soil. When she is not supporting the growth of women’s groups she is near the city of Kampala, where her home garden helps to feed over 25 orphans. It is through these relationships between Ansley and Florence, Sarah and Alice that Mothers of a Nation shows the incredible power women possess within African society while addressing the challenges facing each Ugandan woman. Women’s roles and right to own land, women’s health, stigma surrounding HIV, and the future of sustainable farming are all important topics that surface within the film. The camera has an intimate relationship with its subjects and after three years of working with these women the trust and respect floods through the lens. The camera moves from one field to the next, into homes, kitchens and the streets of Kampala with an intimacy that makes you feel as if you are experiencing it yourself.
