The Coffee & TV team were honoured to work on 'TOPOWA', winner of the Best Music Documentary at the Raindance Film Festival 2020. The feature length film, directed by Phil Sansom and Inigo Gilmore, shares the incredible story of a group of musicians from Uganda.
Coffee & TV's Colourist George Neave worked throughout lockdown to create the colour grade for the documentary, while the studio's VFX team provided finishing touches.
‘TOPOWA!’ is the inspirational story of 12 talented young musicians, many of whom grew up as street children in some of the toughest slums in Uganda. From the dusty dirt roads of the Katwe slum, to the iconic Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, and a residency at the world-famous Cheltenham Music Festival. The film follows Julius, Sumayya, Tadeo, Gilbert and the Brass for Africa musicians as they are welcomed to the UK for an unforgettable experience that will transform their lives forever and empower the next generation of musicians to follow their dreams - 'TOPOWA! Never give up!’
