Introducing…my first short film!
This 4-minute film details the work of the Legal Aid Clinic – one of the many venues to which IPHR freely donates its services.
Specifically, this film captures the story of one woman, Mukamuhire. Here, Mukamuhire explains why she has traveled three days to the Legal Aid Clinic, the situation that brought her there, and what help she has received. Mukamuhire also tells what she thinks about the idea of a Mobile Legal Aid Clinic – an initiative that IPHR is strongly pursuing and hopes to implement soon, once they have the needed resources.
This film was shot on location in Butare, Rwanda (or, rather, Huye, Rwanda…depending on the date of the map you are looking at*). Hopefully it will give you a good idea of the cases that IPHR assists with on a daily basis.
*Butare was renamed to Huye in 2006 after an administrative reorganization. Many cities in Rwanda also underwent similar name changes.
PS – TO ALL MY EXPERT FILM-MAKING/FILM-WATCHING FRIENDS: film-making tips are greatly appreciated!! This is not the only film I’ll be making, and I know I have a lot to learn.
