Exciting cast announcement for Branded – The Movie
A couple of months ago we spread the word about a Kickstarter campaign for a film project based on the life of one of our former members and current volunteers, Mardoche Yembi directed by emerging filmmaker Jordan Bunton-Williams.
A narrative film, it is based on the true life story of Mardoche who was only 7 years old when his mother died and he was sent away from his family in Congo to live with his abusive uncle in London. There, Mardoche lived an unsettled life made worse when his new family believed that he was possessed by Kindoki (African witchcraft).
Not only did they make it to their £10,000 target but we can now announce that they have also successfully held auditions at CYP and assembled an exciting cast!
The next step is to get started with the filming so keep an eye out for more news and find out how you can get involved via the official Branded Indiegogo page.
