Making the News

Synopsis

Kelvin Doe’s homemade broadcast equipment, assembled from a salvaged CD player, improvised battery, mixer, and homemade generator. Freetown, Sierra Leone.

For Colors 86- Making the News, I travelled to Ghana to meet the undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and see the various disguises he uses to expose stories on infanticide; abuse in the health system; and corruption. In Sierra Leone I met Kevin who built his own radio station from scrap, and Patrick, a citizen journalist who reports by text. In Italy I went to see how the most powerful man in Italy make the news, and in France to meet a ‘paparazzi drone’.
