Making “Man on Ground”

Here’s a short behind-the-scenes video piece for those who enjoyed Akin Omotoso’s well-received film “Man on Ground”. (We reviewed it here.) Snippets and anecdotes include those on: The Beginning / The Story / The Funding (crowd-funded initially) / The Shoot, The Cast, The Crew / “Trouble in Paradise” (or: when they feared the production would shut down; miraculously “saved by AK Tshabalala” and then some other institutions) / why everyone is dressed in black – concurrent with the “theme of the film” / and, finally, the Festival Reception (a runaway success).
