Music documentary Imba Means Sing will be released online worldwide in December.
The film follows three children from the slums of Uganda, who are selected to tour the world with the Grammy-nominated African Children’s Choir. The choir’s performances raise money that ultimately funds each child’s education through college.
In an effort to raise awareness and support for music education on a local basis, as well as equal access to education as a human right, Momentum Pictures will distribute the film on VOD in over 100 countries (and in 37 different languages) on the same day next month – with all of the filmmaker profits donated back to the African Children’s Choir to further help educate kids in Africa.
“We are excited to bring this feel-good, family film to audiences around the globe during the holiday season,” says Berry Meyerowitz, President, Momentum Pictures. “By simply purchasing the film, audiences will be giving back to a wonderful organization, which is a great way to marry charitable giving and watching movies.”
The project, which won the 2013 Sundance Collective, Best Social Impact Film In-the-Making Award, is supported by major international organisations, including the United Nations, One Foundation, and Girl Talk.
“This movie has been a passion project of mine for over four years and I’m thrilled the choir’s story is finally being shared cinematically,” says Erin Levin, producer of the film and a Peabody and Emmy award-winning humanitarian journalist and filmmaker.
“These kids are an inspiration and I look forward to people becoming more aware of the African Children’s Choir’s work.”
The movie will be released on Friday 4th December on iTunes, Google Play, Microsoft, Vimeo and Sony VOD platforms. Watch the trailer here:
