For the first episode of Season 2, I had the honour of speaking with Blessing Chinanga, filmmaker and co-founder of Invision Studios. In this episode, we covered his life story and career trajectory to date. Most importantly though we touched on the collective thinking needed to fix the Zimbabwean Film Industry.
My favourite excerpt from our conversation:
"How this industry is supposed to be structured, is that it's supposed to be structured in four pillars.
What needs to happen is these four pillars need to understand that there is capital here with the asset-base of the Zimbabwean story. The Zimbabwean story is an asset in itself. We have so many stories and we need to see those stories as assets."
