FiGa Films Swoops on First Uganda-Brazil Co-Production, ‘Kevin’ (Exclusive)

Miami-based FiGa Films has picked up worldwide sales rights outside Brazil to “Kevin,” an unprecedented co-production between Brazil and Uganda.

FiGa Films will be taking the documentary to this week’s American Film Market and early December’s Ventana Sur as part of its slate.

By newcomer Joana Oliveira, the doc pivots on her long-time friendship with a vibrant Ugandan mother of three called Kevin whom she met while studying in Berlin some two decades ago.

“Kevin and I have been friends since 1999 and the idea of attesting her importance in my life through a film has only been possible because someone else also saw it as a story to be told,” said Oliveira, adding that the film was shot in Uganda and Brazil and boasted an international crew from both countries as well as from Germany, Kenya and the U.S.

The film is lead produced by Luana Melgaço
