Released Keycard, a production which employed up to 100 filmmakers in Uganda 

bLACK GLOVE

A noir murder mystery fashion film, written by Douglas Dubois Sebamala, Directed by Angella Emurwon. Set in quintessential metropolitan Kampala, in the waterfall escarpments Mt. Elgon, Mbale and the magnificent crater regions of Lake Bunyonyi, in Uganda, the film is a statement and tribute to Uganda as The Pearl of Africa. It is our love letter to all Black people on the continent, as we use film to recreate the narrative about Africa, and challenge the single story perspective that depicts Africa as a land of war, hunger and disease.Co-Produced by Sebamala Arts and SOLOFX
