Ugandan Kay Kyohairwe, aka Kowa launches crowdfunding campaign for her film “Beats in a Jungle”

Ugandan Kay Kyohairwe, aka Kowa launches crowdfunding campaign for her film “Beats in a Jungle”


Ugandan filmmaker Kay Kyohairwe, aka Kowa has recently launched a crowd-funding campaign for her first feature film, "Beats in a Jungle", that tells the story of a young woman who is abducted, and her fight to return home.

Visit the Beats in a Jungle for details about the crowdfunding efforts and to make a contribution.

"Beats in a Jungle" was inspired by Kowa's experiences at her organization Coalition for Human Rights & Education Uganda (C.O.H.R.E) where she worked with young Aboke girls and boys who were kidnapped in Northern Uganda. After time spent studying video production at London's Blake College, Kowa returned to Uganda to work on telling these stories through images.
Shooting is scheduled to start in late September in and around Kampala with an all-Ugandan cast and crew.
