Senegal - 2023 - 27min
The 10th anniversary of the Sunu Thiossane Youth Development Organization shows the journey that has been a kaleidoscope of steps towards a mission that focuses on educating African youth for greater, global impact.
This documentary focuses on the journey of growth, cultural awareness and bridging the gap between Africans and the Diaspora. From settling in Senegal to running a summer camp, to setting up a year-round youth program specifically aimed at providing quality education to our young people and our community.
The Making of an African Dream premiered at the Musee Des Civilisation Noires in Dakar in May 2023 and received the Judges Award for Best Foreign Documentary at the Gary International Black Film Festival in October; it is on the lineup at the International Images Film Festival for Women 2023.
