ENOUGH | THE EMPOWERED WOMEN OF KOROGOCHOBIAS
(8 min) Canada/Kenya
[watch trailer]

Director: Brent Foster
Producer: Tammy Foster

Description:
Beatrice Nyariara lives in Korogocho. It's widely considered to be Nairobi's most dangerous slum. More than 150,000 people are packed into the shanty town which is less than two square kilometers. Crime is high. Gangs are active. Addiction is rampant. A while back, men in her community started to attack the "grandmothers" of Korogocho at night. Most of the women attacked are sexually assaulted, and some have been killed. The men believe that the elder women were less likely to be HIV positive. They also saw them as vulnerable. A few years ago, Beatrice decided enough was enough. It was time to fight back. It was time to develop a community.

Biography:
Brent Foster’s work as a director, DOP, and photojournalist has led him to more than 30 countries giving him a chance to tell incredibly powerful stories ranging from conflict in the Gaza Strip to doctors fighting for access to pain relief for the chronically ill in India for editorial clients such as The New York Times, TIME Magazine, and Canadian Geographic. Foster recognized the significance of telling stories through cinematic work. It was the power of hearing a subject’s voice, and seeing the way they interact and move with the world that led him to a career shift into directing. Brent has since acted as Director/DOP on projects for global brands such as Nike, The NBA, DJI, Purolator and Gatorade to help them create authentic pieces of content that resonate with viewers. His work was has won numerous international awards and was shortlisted for the Young Directors Award and the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase in Cannes. Alongside his branded projects, Foster’s passion project entitled “While I’m Here | The Legacy Project” profiles everyday heroes passing on a legacy.
