Slum Tv: Making Media in Mathare
This documentary by DCTV member Paula Geraghty brings to the fore the activities of the crew of SLUM-TV. Operating from Mathare, one of the largest slums in Kenya, SLUM-TV was created to document the lives of the people in the slum and to ‘reevaluate’ these lives through the camera. The recordings are projected on wall, at night, for the viewing pleasure of the neighborhood. Since it’s creation, the SLUM-TV has emerged as a avenue for the slum youths to express themselves and initiate dialogue within their community
