Working together to Shape our Future : a film production for London’s School of Economics and Political Science.
In 2018, UPPL produced a short cinematographic film to highlight the activities and alumni network of LSE’s Programme for African Leadership (PfAL).
Our goal was to highlight the ideas of LSE’s PfAL graduates and connect the growing global community of emerging African leaders, on the continent and beyond. The result is a legacy film that served as a communication and fundraising tool for the University.
Shot in Nairobi as well as in Mombasa, Kenya, we weaved a narrative based around the research of Dr. Maggy Ainley, alongside the insights of various educators and students from previous LSE cohorts, as well as experts from the United Nations, Amnesty International and the World Wide Web Foundation.s.
Our film served as a key tool for the funding of PfAL initiatives, allowing for the launch of LSE’s Africa Engagement Programme, a PfAL initiative aimed at strengthening LSE’s engagement toward Africa’s private and public institutions that offer career opportunities to future African graduates.
