When I’m not in front of the camera, you can find me behind the scenes — directing, writing, shooting, editing and producing — for various clients. These commercial works fall under my MYANDA Films production company.
***TELEMA: a MYANDA film***Fred Bauma is paying the price for trying to motivate the Congo’s youth to TELEMA, which is native Lingala for “stand up.” Imprisoned since March 15th, the 25-year-old activist has continued to fight for democracy from his prison cell.
He’s been communicating with his large network of fellow activists, who have vowed to keep working to bring tangible change to their country.
With the 2016 presidential elections approaching, and President Joseph Kabila threatening to stay in power past the two-term limit, the youth activists have one unifying goal: rally the youth to have a say in the country’s future, by any means necessary.
