KAMPALA STORY & SWEET, SWEET COUNTRY
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4 @ 8:00PM - NY PREMIERE

KAMPALA STORY
A drama about family and responsibility. It is about a karimojong girl's maturing into a woman. Apio, a 14 year old Karamojong girl and her mother run their household on money wired through mobile money service from her father who works at a security firm in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. When her father all of a sudden stops communicating with the family at a time when Apio's mother is pregnant and might need a costly medical operation, she travels to Kampala to find him so they can SMS money back home. Apio then is confronted to the dangers of a city unfriendly to courageous young girls. The film portraits a modern Africa where, a decade ago, 300.000 people in Uganda had access to a telephone, and today more than 3.000.000 people own a mobile phone.
