Director Statement

In my latest project, "Katogo”, a multiplicity of voices and visions shaped the creative outcome. It is beautiful that through collaboration, we are able to transcend the boundaries of individualism, reaching new heights of creativity by weaving together the threads of our perspectives into a unified whole. Stylistic experimentation became the vehicle through which a collaborative vision, that transcends geographical and ideological boundaries, thrived.

As a freestyler, I found immense excitement in mixing intuitive improvisations into a spontaneous collage, focused on narratives emerging from the unpredictable rhythm of chance encounters and random occurrences. In pursuit of this artistic vision, I immerse myself in the flow of spontaneity and celebrate the liberating beauty of free play. There, a freshness arises — a surrender to the fragments, an embrace of the unknown, an immersion into the fluidity and tension between contrasting forces.

Audiovisual dissonances serve as anchors in the film, grounding it in the present moment and allowing for a graceful transition into the chaos of the journey. They also help me strike a balance between stimulating the senses and creating moments of minimalistic clarity. It is a delicate dance that seeks to engage viewers while providing space for introspection and the interpretation of personal truths within the framework of the film.

At the core of the script lies an exciting and inspiring world filled with art, music, and underground culture — a world that I will forever be grateful to have experienced. I want to close this statement by giving the biggest shoutout to Uganda and all the beautiful friendships that came along the way.
