ABOUT US (SLC)
In 2007 during the World Social Forum in Kenya Slum Cinema started a multi-media project to show interesting documentaries in slums. The mobile Slum Cinema theaters were built by the residents of the slums themselves. At the World Social Forum there was a lot of attention for the information gap communities lack.
The performances in Nairobi Slum Cinema received a tremendous interest. Around 4.000 people attended the many screenings during four days. Now the pilot also has been a dropped in slums in other countries, including Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Suriname. Other countries will follow as soon as budget is found
Slum Cinema trains local youth to become a photographer or video reporter to create picture information and video reports for the local community and a living for the local makers. This information will be digital exchanged worldwide between the chapters on the online channel www.slumcinema.tv.
