'Once upon a time', is how many of our favourite childhood stories begin. Once upon a time there was a young girl, actually (9) young girls and (11) young boys born in different parts of East Africa, into different families, on different days, growing up in different households with different traditions. But one thing all of them had in common was a dream that went far beyond their circumstances: to tell their stories to the world. As they grew up, all 20 of them became storytellers in one way or another. But on October 3rd 2018, they all landed a leading role in a new story. A story never before seen in their part of the world. The story of a film training programme that would change the course of their lives in a big way: the MultiChoice Talent Factory East Africa Academy. We tracked the journeys of these aspiring storytellers to find out how this training programme impacted the course of their own stories, as well as those of the families and communities around them.
