In his introductory remarks before the screening, the Dean of the School of Communication, Cinematics and Creative Arts Prof. Patrick Ebewo thanked the proprietors of the Baraza Media lab for providing space for the screening of the film. He also encouraged upcoming film makers to showcase their films in spaces like Baraza Media Lab and to accept criticism from like-minded creatives.
On his part, Mr Kelvin Osoo, the director of Unbalanced shared with the audience his motivation, experience and future works during the interactive question and answer session.
Baraza media lab is an initiative that provides space for creative artists to network, collaborate and share experiences.
