LION BASE is a documentary that provides an intimate perspective at the life of 20 youth that have emerged from a life in a gutter called LION BASE – one of the toughest ghettos in the central part of Freetown, Sierra Leone where young men and boys live in under a bridge in a gutter as a menace to and outlaws of society. The film invites you into a reality that many of us are unable to imagine. It follows the life of these youth and shows their development from life dominated by violence and crime into forming the creative collective FOLORUNSHO. Even though they have never left their city or country, their creations and collaborations have travelled far……from LION BASE to COLETTE in Paris and across the globe. It shows the transformation of their lives using their innate creativity and talent.
