Ibrahim is inspired by his father who took him to the cinema every week. “I don’t know if I’ve found my style yet, but I feel like the more that I work with people the more I get to work on learning myself.”

Filmmaker and photographer

 

Lorraine grew up in Kenya and moved to London when she was just 12. “I love how films can make people feel a typeof way, that resonates inside, and can help create change or even just help make people feel good.”

“It’s very, very important to have more Black people in filmmaking. We need to have more role models, more people to influence the youth, because there’s definitely a position here for all of us, it just needs to be known.”

Filmmaker and actor

 

Kaylen’s passion for storytelling started at a young age when he watched films as a form of escape. “For me, filmmaking is the power of having an idea, then using my vision and working with others to make it happen.”

Kemi-Anna realized quickly her true purpose sits behind the camera in giving insight into the real stories of people surrounding her. “When I found out I was going to be part of this project...I was mad excited and screaming!”
