Making the Film

The Bakiga is a documentary film of 28 minutes and 31 seconds that was shot and made in Kabale District in southwestern Uganda between June and September 2005. In March 2006 it was improved and refined.

The point of The Bakiga is that no real development is possible without understanding and respecting your history and culture. It takes you around the land of the Bakiga tribe, showing what has remained of the traditional culture and how people imitate their former colonial masters.

The Man In The Centre

The filming would have been impossible without the good will and patience of Festo Karwemera, an 81-year-old young man. He was always available, organising his busy schedule around our shooting sessions. Whenever he needed to repeat a certain action endlessly, he just said that he liked to exercise.
This former teacher is a widely known fighter for the language and culture of his Bakiga. He has written many books and prepares a radio show on Voice of Kigezi.

Who Is Whose Amplifier?

The script is based on Karwemera's discussions with Miha Logar, the promotor of his cultural museum. Because of their long cooperation and shared views, it is hard to say which lines originated in Karwemera's and which Logar's head.

For this first documentary made by Edirisa we got a special multimedia volunteer from Austria, Jojo Benedict, whose input was big.

Martin Aijuka Depories, a young Ugandan artist, contributed some excellent artwork.

Charlie Done, an Australian video professional, later worked on animations, sound and other details.

Volunteer Production

You probably won't notice, but the film is a low-budget production (the budget was under USh 400,000). It depended on volunteers from Uganda and abroad, who were using their personal equipment - the second camera and filming skills of Aggrey Masiko (Bricolps International) were indispensable.

The Bakiga was cut on a home computer (Apple iMac G5), with a free program called iMovie. We were pushing our software to its limits and suffered a lot in the last phase when the material became too much for iMovie to cope with. Animations were made with a free trial copy of Paint Shop Pro. Later we earned ourselves Final Cut Express and used it for polishing the material.
