Director Statement

Warm greetings from Blaq Boy Pictures & Basement Entertainment Africa and the art & creative industry of the Lango sub-region

one afternoon, a group of young men knock on my door asking for help to bring their dream of making a short film a reality. I had just left Kampala taking a break from the then just-concluded 2021 presidential elections and the nationwide lockdown that had left so many of my friends heartbroken, jailed, or dead.

on reading their draft of a script, I decided to use the little finance and poor pieces of equipment I could get hold of to keep these young Men out of trouble, hence the volt.

This Short film titled “THE VOLT” is a 27-minute action science fiction film (Sci-Fi movie) that has helped widen the student’s knowledge and interest in physics (Quantum mechanics), keeping them in contact and out of trouble during this lockdown.
