About your host

A seasoned filmmaker and co-founder of Mike Lolly Productions, I grew up in the Kibera slums. That experience shaped who I am today, and it's where I first discovered cameras and my love of film.

What we’ll do

Find inspiration in the location that turned me into a storyteller. I'll tell you about growing up in Kibera and how this community made me who I am today. Afterward, we'll find a story of our own and learn how to mold it into a short film together. We'll create a magical script based off of our one-hour trip through Kibera's creative spaces and community. Then we'll film it and do a quick edit.

What else you should know

Bring your own film gear or beverage if you're comfortable this way. You'll be visiting poor areas of town, so you'll need to dress comfortably and modestly, avoid taking valuables, and be alert as normal. We'll be in a group so if we stick together and you listen to your host then there's no reason you should have a problem..
