Our most recent documentary work has focused on urgent socio-political issues in Africa: peace building and land tenure/property rights.
We are currently in pre-production on Fragile Island of Peace, a one-hour film that explores the fragile peace process in Burundi. In partnership with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Spectrum Media’s film will tell the story of how Burundi is rising beyond more than a decade of violent ethnic conflict to work together as a nation on shared challenges.
Our film project on land rights in the Central African Republic showcased a critical USAID program developed to protect the livelihoods of artisanal diamond miners. Our resulting films, Diamonds, Development and Property Rights and More Than a Piece of Paper, have been disseminated among development professionals worldwide to spotlight the problems of unsecured land rights, especially in poor, rural areas.
