Sierra Leone is a country that has experienced unfathomable loss. Our goal is to bring hope back to the people of Sierra Leone who were affected by the devastating civil war. More than a decade has passed since troops withdrew from the country, but Sierra Leone has yet to shake its war-torn image.
While it is important to realize that the effects of war are long lasting and hard to overcome, it is also important to celebrate Sierra Leone, its people and its culture. Part of restoring hope is igniting and inspiring a population. Producer Sorious Samura is working to do just that.
'Sierra Leone: An Artist's Journey,' is a feature-length documentary film that will focus on the country's celebrated playwright, Charlie Haffner. The viewer will follow Haffner on his mission to produce a play unlike anything the country has ever seen. Samura hopes to illuminate a Sierra Leone that the world has yet to see.
As an organization working to strengthen the futures of the citizens of Sierra Leone it is refreshing and inspiring to see the country's best resource, its people, in the spotlight.
