Imba Means Sing says
Imba Means Sing is a character-driven heartfelt story of resilience and the impact of education. The film follows Angel, Moses and Nina from the slums of Kampala, Uganda through a world tour with the Grammy-nominated African Children's Choir. The film is stunningly shot and told through Moses, Angel and Nina’s perspectives on their one shot journey from poverty to education. Their story is an intimate look at how each child processes the joys and challenges of their life-changing opportunity.

Imba Means Sing is not your average African story.

Set in the slums of Uganda, the streets of New York, small towns of America and legendary recording studios from Nashville to Abbey Road, this unique film weaves together the lives of Angel, Moses and Nina - three young Africans (7-11 years old) who have been selected to participate in the Grammy-nominated African Children's Choir. The structure of the film weaves between nuanced character scenes with layers of visual observations of America and Uganda.

Children selected to be in the Choir are professionally trained to sing and dance, educated and flown to the West to perform in theaters, churches and community centers. Wise beyond their years, Angel, Moses and Nina understand the enormity of the opportunity they’ve been given and want desperately to do a good job. They are performing to raise the money that will fund their educations through college. The stakes are high: their own futures and the futures of their families rest in their hands.

For two years Erin Levin Bernhardt, producer, and Danielle Bernstein, director, followed the kids as they left everything they knew in Kampala, Uganda and set off on an 18-month journey through the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. After their world tour, they return to Uganda transformed.

Ultimately, this film is about resilience: something we are all practicing daily regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Angel, Moses and Nina will inspire young people all over the world to pursue their dreams. Our goal is to spark dialog about the future of our global youth through education as a human right, the importance of music in education, and how we can all participate in the betterment of our collective futures.
