Mughunda


This mini-documentary puts Nathan in front of the camera as he meets an extraordinary Congolese farmer named Mughunda.

It’s a constant challenge for nonprofit organizations to make their impact relatable and understandable for their donor audience. This is particularly true for an international organization whose programs take place in a context so removed from modern, affluent life that it might as well be another world. Mavuno, based in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, faces this challenge.

To overcome this obstacle, Nathan put himself in the story, taking on the role of observer as he interviewed Mughunda, one of Mavuno’s program participants.

The production of this film posed several challenges and required the international collaboration of multiple parties. Nathan concepted, directed, and edited the film, and also shot a majority of the footage, with assistance from Serge Sikuli, a Congolese journalist and communications director.
