Children of Sodom and Gomorrah
by Jens Jarisch and Sharon Davis (360 Documentaries, 2011)
Sodom and Gomorrah is a hellish neighborhood in Accra, Ghana, where children eke out a living on a scrap heap of discarded computers that the West no longer needs. The children scavenge and then sell computer parts for a pittance, while they dream of escaping illegally to Europe.

My Blue Bucket
by Helene Thomas and Steven Tilley (Re:sound debut, Third Coast ShortDocs Challenge, 2012)
A simple scene of sharing language, laughter, songs and daily chores with my neighbours in Kigali, Rwanda.
