An African solar powered mobile cinema that fits in a box, that can screen everywhere & anywhere, taking media where it matters.

Turning solar power into social impact, we take media to diverse communities with limited access diverse content. We have screened to 6000 direct audience members since 2013, in South Africa, Zambia and Zanzibar and we are passionate about community dialogue that promotes local active citizenship - the screenings become a soapbox for networking and exchange. We focus on health, environment and political advocacy initiatives, producing and screening media content & powerful films, through partnerships with the likes of Green Peace, The Childrens' Radio Foundation, Open Society Foundations, The Right2Know Campaign & Red Bull Amaphiko to foster audience engagement whilst celebrating innovative and immersive forms of storytelling.
