About this project
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge for this (or any other independent) project with a similiar focus, is gaining access to the right individuals/areas. With no large support staff, budget, and clout that a major network can bring (along with its own agenda) you can often be denied access to the very stories that would make your documentary compelling. This- along with the inherent danger involved, is what keeps many good films from being made.
We are qualified to overcome this because we have already been on location and made the necessary contacts. Prior to filming we called on several friends in the region who were able to direct us to the right people. Once filming started, we amassed a network of new friends, guides, political refugees, freedom fighters, revolutionaries, journalists, and colleagues who can all help us gain access to what/whom we need.
