Walking Barefoot
Walking Barefoot
Short documentary about and made with children living on the streets of Lusaka in Zambia. Together with my friend Vasco Severino, who runs the Fountain of Hope shelter in Lusaka, I started a project with children who used to or still live on the streets of Lusaka. They played out scenes of experiences that where common to their lifestyle and we filmed it. We gave the story a strong moral so Vasco can use it in his work to educate the children.
