The Heart of Africa

Heart of Africa from Michael Sugrue on Vimeo.

This film is an abstract composite of my memories and experiences from a trip to Rwanda and Uganda a couple of years ago. It was nothing at all like what I expected. Amid toil and triumph, this is an incredible part of the world, with amazing people doing incredible things. I hope people consider visiting these two countries.

Put on your headphones and watch in a darkened room if you're serious about watching it.

Big thanks to camera assistant Ivan Agerton, Emily Miller (a specific editorial suggestion), and Jongnic Bontemps (awesomely haunting score).
