2014 Hot Docs Forum Includes South Africa/Kenya Co-Production Feature 'Logs Of War'

Log Of War

Congratulations to Kenyan director Hawa Essuman, Anjali Nayar and South African producer Steven Markovitz on their feature documentary project, Logs Of War, being selected for the 2014 Hot Docs Forum, regarded as the most effective international documentary market in North America - a dynamic pitching event that stimulates international co-production financing for projects at various levels of completion. 

It's a two-day, focused on a slate of pre-selected international project presentations showcased in front of a round table of commissioning editors, programming executives and delegates from around the globe.

The South African/Kenyan production, Logs Of War, follows a hardened Liberian activist who goes up against Nobel Laureate President Sirleaf over corruption, and the war on resources. But when his wife gets cancer and brother runs for politics, his hardline stance blurs.

Steven Markovitz's Big World Cinema production company is producing the film, which has been the recipient of a few other similar accolades, like being selected for the 2013 Tribeca Film Institute New Media Fund, as well as the IDFA Fund in 2012 to name a couple.
