I was in Sierra Leone filming a project for Freetown Music Festival and I knew I had to capture some of the things bubbling under the surface of this humming capital. Freetown has a unique energy, beautiful, bustling and inspiring.

I had been talking to Kwaku Kamara, a local and one of the production team about the underground gay scene in Sierra Leone. It is through Kwaku that I met Harold and Jiva and after a few conversations we began to talk about what life is like for them and their friends in Freetown.

I was struck by their incredible resilience, joy and determination in fighting for their LGBTQ rights in a country where homosexuality is still illegal. I wanted to make something that simply told their story about strength, life and a need to love freely in Freetown.

​This film documents the experiences of three groups of musicians, British, Sierra Leoneon and Icelandic as they came together for the first time to meet and exchange ideas in 2018.

Language and cultural differences were no barrier to the creative flow with the group writing and producing over 20 songs in just three days. Irish-Sierra Leonean singer Loah says: “It was pretty astounding how well, how fruitfully and how productively we were all able to work together”. Nigerian-Sierra Leonean drummer Emmanuel agrees: “I found out that everybody who took part of the project understood one language, which is the music.”

A poetic ode to the beauty of Sierra Leone, this film depicts how the experience for many was marked by a sense of collaboration and togetherness. Icelandic artist Cell7 reflects: “Even though we didn’t always understand each other, we were always in agreement and celebrated the music we made together. My music has benefitted from this process and continues to be inspired by the creative spirit of the Osusu project.”
