    The documentary was directed by Harrison Thane for a DFID program called SPARK (Support and Protection for Affected Refugees in Kenya) which seeks to integrate refugees into Kenyan society through skills training. The goal of the documentary was to show how these different cultures – refugees and Kenyans – can both benefit from their unique ingenuity and creativity. Harrison and the production team spent 4 months researching and filming the stories with the different communities in Kakuma and Kalobeyei, to capture the true power and potential of the people living both in and around the camp. The refugee production team was able to compellingly push back against stereotypes that create obstacles in the search for solutions.
