Solomon W. Jagwe | Galiwango Film Director | www.sowl.com ~ Seeking to raise Awareness to the plight of the Mountain Gorillas | Wild Life Conservation Effort
The purpose of this Film is to reach out to the Youth, to sensitize them to the plight of the last remaining “less than 800” mountain gorillas, as well as the hard work done by the rangers as they go about protecting these endangered wildlife treasures from poachers, the occasional rebel remnant groups and the inadvertent traps. I am also striving to shine a light to the impact of the deforestation of the Virunga and Bwindi jungles for the illegal charcoal trade, on local communities like the Batwa and the wildlife.
Galiwango Obulamu Bw'ekisodde (Translated: The life of a mountain Gorilla) is a 3D animated film about the story of an orphaned mountain Gorilla called Galiwango. The film explores the challenges that Galiwango encounters when he is captured and sold as a baby on the black market by Kasobeza, a former ranger turned rebel, to an illegal animal trafficking ring leader called Musawo (meaning the Doctor) .
