Place of Hope, The Kasama Community and the Great Ordeal

When me and Daniel decide to showcase videos on the blog we’re often wary of the length, as we know many people can get distracted when watching long pieces. Today I’m going to throw this rule out of the window as I point you towards a piece titled ‘Place of Hope, The Kasama Community and the Great Ordeal’, directed by Henry Mochida and Mike Douglass.
