FILM SCHOOL AFRICA
What would make someone who has a quickly growing career in the film industry give up everything to go live in Africa? That was the question that inspired director Nathan Pfaff to create Film School Africa. From Global Digital Releasing comes the story of a Hollywood casting director that leaves her lucrative career behind in order to teach filmmaking to youth in an impoverished community in South Africa.
“Film School Africa is a tribute to those filmmakers and the power of their untapped storytelling abilities. Headed up by two powerful women, the staff and students of the film school defy social norms on multiple levels and vulnerably reveal what happens when different racial & cultural groups collide in filmmaking”, says Pfaff. “With humor, sincerity, tragedy, and all the elements of a good story, audiences are sure to go on a rollercoaster of emotion when watched till the very end.”
Film School Africa will be available Jan. 17 on demand.
