A HIDDEN GEM

DIRECTOR / ANNA BOLSTER

The Ceramic Art School in Mukono, Uganda

At the same time the pottery is the core of the rise and pride of Ugandan art, which had entirely been demolished by Idi Amin. The film follows the connection between the new rise of Ugandan pottery art and the chance it bears by portraying the lives of some of the potters: the founder of the pottery, a student, a pottery master, the future director of the pottery and one student who became a shooting star in contemporary pottery and African art in Uganda. 

We produced this film for Vision for Africa and Goethe Institut Uganda.
