Forever Home Artsy Solomon | Kenya | 9 min. Forever Home is a poignant short film that deals with themes of poverty and climate change, giving voice to those who would otherwise be unheard. The story highlights the struggle for stability and belonging and the challenges of benefiting from Africa's rich resources.

The Reclaimers Sifiso Khanyile |South Africa | 2022 | 20 min. The Reclaimers showcases the lives of self-employed waste collectors in South Africa who collect recyclable goods and resell them.
