FilmAid, a nonprofit organisation that uses the power of film to bring life-saving information to refugees, has produced its first ever rock music video for World Refugee Day.
This gorgeous music video inspired by the hit single ‘A Heavy Abacus’ by The Joy Formidable, was directed by award-winning filmmakers Paola Mendoza and Topaz Adizes, who just returned home after spending a month volunteering as Visiting Teaching Artists for FilmAid in Kakuma Refugee Camp in Northern Kenya. Paola and Topaz were inspired by the strength and dignity of the people they met at Kakuma, and they shot this video starring young Sudanese refugees in just three days -- using one camera, two light reflectors, and an iPhone!
This video has been released in support of World Refugee Day and the 44 million refugees worldwide
