I felt I was made for this, as a filmmaker, mother and birth
doula and was deeply grateful to have been appointed
for the position.
It has been challenging journey which is now soon
coming to an end....I am entering month 9....about
to give birth to the film that I have been carrying inside
me since January, with very little control over its
production in African countries, encountering delays
due to Covid restrictions and other limitations....
and learning to let go of expectations as you would
AND NOW FINALLY...
I am immersed in the editing process, joining the
dots together, the story and emotions, to make sense,
to give sense and it is difficult and exciting at the same
time just as being pregnant can be like in your last month.
I have found a perfect use for my easel in
post-production, using storyboards created by
the wonderful animator I am working with
