                                        “Where is Home?”

From Filmmaker and Human Rights Activist Kamoga Hassan comes a new documentary film. “Where is Home?” follows the stories of LGBT Ugandans seeking asylum in foreign countries to escape the persecution they face in their own.

“Where is home?” explores what is left behind when you have to leave everything you’ve known because of who you are. It is estimated that the plight of persecution of LGBT throughout the world has left hundreds fleeing their communities to seek a life in a more open society where they hope to be accepted for who they are.

“Where is home?” explores the triumphs and joys of being accepted into a new society but also contrasts the struggles of home sickness and cultural identity asking the ultimate question “Where is home?”

                                          Why are we fundraising?

In the intial stages of pre production, we are fundraising to obtain the proper video equipment to facilitate the interviews as well as the shots of Uganda to capture the themes of this story. Kamoga Hassan is in Canada until the end of January and would like the opportunity to purchase the equipment to use in Uganda to document this important story.

Equipment Goals for Pre Production:

Canon XA30 Video Camera

Tripod

Audio Recorder

Film Lights

If we exceed our fundraising target for our pre production phase, any additional funds will go to our production phase to facilitate interviews of LGBT asylum seekers and refugees.

Riesgos y desafíos

This film requires a certain degree of risk to be produced in Uganda detailing the persecution of Ugandan LGBT citizens. Kamoga and team have the experience of producing films under these circumstances and are eager to tell this story.

Currently our first challenge is to secure to proper equipment in a timely fashion for Kamoga Hassan to purchase the filming equipment before returning to Uganda to be begin the production phase.
