Rotary Foundation: Lungie - a true story
Lungie is fourteen when she loses her mother and her only sister, and is left an orphan. This is the true story of how she overcame adversity and became a role model and source of inspiration for a new generation of students in Langa, Cape Town, South Africa.
The agency, walder werber, asked Alexander Szombath and me to research and write a screenplay based on a true case. We then flew to South Africa, where we shot with local crew and local actors, and great support from the people at LEAP school. Thank you.
