Making your first feature documentary is hard, and it's a process that you rarely get a close look at. This is why I decided to start documenting my own struggle as a filmmaker.
About three years ago I started working on my debut feature doc called The Pearl Of Africa. Making it seems to be impossible, which I why I decided to create a vlog about my struggle to make the film.
The Pearl Of Africa is a story about love, hate and being transgender, in one of the worlds most transphobic places, Uganda.
Through the life of Ugandan trans woman Cleopatra Kambugu, who was forced to flee to Kenya after being "outed" as homosexual, in one of Uganda's major tabloids. We get a deep personal look at what it means to be transgender in Uganda.

In the fifth episode of Like A Vlog, I talk more about my first experience coming to Uganda.
