Documentarian’s Note: In 2019 I traveled to Zimbabwe, in the south of Africa, for the second time to record the cultural phenomenon that occurs there. The Shona people live the age-old culture bequeathed to them by their ancestors, even after being censored by colonialism. Today, both in the countryside and in urban areas, they continue playing traditional music and fabricating their instruments as they did in the old days. 

What does Kunakirwa mean? One afternoon when the song we were playing came to an end, my mentor laughed and said, “Kunakirwa.” I asked him what it meant and he answered: “it means to enjoy the sound together.” This encompasses the sense of community that comes so naturally to the Shona.

The documentary feature “Kunakirwa” transports us to this culture and brings us closer to the life of different zimbabwean families, showing us their customs, how they build their instruments, what they think and how they experience art and music. 

After two years of filming, this documentary begins its post-production stage and we need your economic help for this. Our objective is to finance all the expenses of processes involved: editing video, sound post-production, mixing, graphic design, translations and distribution. All of this can be made possible with your help!
 

It is important to clarify that the money collected is going to be used to cover production expenses of the documentary: future earnings from festivals, contests, sponsors, etc., will be distributed to the Zimbabwean families who participated in the documentary, who have been strongly affected by the global pandemic situation.

Thanks for your support!

If we don't reach the 100% of the funding goal, we will use it to do the following:

  • With the 10%

    Finance the cost of post-production processes to complete the teaser and continue raising funds.

  • With the 25%

    Obtain a first assembly of the documentary and continue raising funds.

  • With the 50%

    Cover the cost of the video editing process so that we may obtain a final cut of the documentary and continue raising funds.

  • With the 75%

    Complete post-production to finish the entirety of the documentary. That would leave distribution, translations, production and submissions to international film festivals pending.
