Film School Africa

Katie Taylor, a Los Angeles casting director leaves her quickly growing career behind in order to set the foundation for a film school for the youth in an impoverished South African community.

This is the trailer of the documentary film. Lower on this page you can watch the full film.

Originally intending solely to train them for employment opportunities, she quickly discovers the therapeutic impact on her students as they process life events through their films.

Despite the community being resistant towards art and film, the school expands to a second community, and an additional college level program.

Emerging from a wide range of social backgrounds, the students find themselves bridging barriers as they become united through film-making. Film School Africa exemplifies the power of storytelling within both the individual and the community.
