Moma is a young man who dreams of being an architect to build a better life for himself and his family. Experience one of the first five films from a truly inspiring cinematic initiative. Four film-makers launched an international media development project under the mandate to "Inspire. Educate. Entertain." In the summer of 2007, with no funding and borrowed equipment, the Burundi Film Center (BFC) trained 36 students aged 18-25 on the basics of film theory and production, in an attempt to translate the students' stories to the screen. The results are five short dramatic films both universal to the human condition and unique to the tiny, war-ravaged east African nation of Burundi. Stories about love, rape, AIDS, refugees, big dreams and bigger barriers now provide a touching an intimate picture into this world.
