Dehanza Rogers’s Beautiful “Sweet, Sweet Country”

Last year, Dehanza Rogers hit me up to work on a short film for her program at the UCLA Film school. This summer, she’s just finished shooting another short called Sweet, Sweet Country: A Refugee’s Tale. The film is a refugee story that follows a slice of 20 year-old Ndizeye’s life as she navigates the space in between America and home.

Dehanza (I call her Daye) has 11 days left on her Kickstarter campaign for Sweet, Sweet Country. To support this film, we’re running a series on the story based on an interview I had with Daye last week. I hope you all support the work of Brown filmmakers telling stories at the margins and for the margins.
