Stories about our continent and our experience are often distorted (if not totally untold) – and it's to be expected when the agents telling the tales are far removed. My Africa Is is a documentary series that aims to show a more complete narrative. Starting this autumn, the crew will embark on a 13 city, 10 country tour of our continent, spending time with young people who want to share the exciting things they're doing to improve their communities.
A great Kickstarter project was brought to my attention by KateBomz. Merkato is a documentary film about one of the largest and oldest open-air markets in Africa – in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
