A Movie For My Mom

This is a pitch video for an experimental documentary I wish to film in my birthplace of Maputo, Mozambique. I want to use the letters my mother wrote to her sister after my father passed away, as a monologue performed by an actress. I would set this monologue against footage of Maputo, were my mother spent 25 years of her life. I have all the necessary assets in terms of filmmaking (a good laptop, a Canon 5D Mark 3 camera), but I need a budget that would cover the travel expenses as well as the fee for hiring an actress.

The resulting film would be a present and a dedication for my mom; as well as part of my assignments at the University of West London.
