The idea for this piece was to create something using very naturalistic scenes around Rwanda. We wanted to try and portray the issues surrounding dirty water in a very short space of time while still trying to keep the commercial emotive. We shot this between two different schools, one with clean drinking water, and one without. All the supers are quotes (albeit translated) taken from interviews with our main participant (John Bosco), and the music is recorded live on scene at the post-intervention school (the dancing scenes). It’s one of my favourite pieces of work to date as I feel that it both shows the daily struggle of our participants, while also maintaining their dignity and pride in what they do.
