DIVIZIONZ is a low-budget digital guerilla feature film directed by YES! THAT’S US. It is a co-production between DEDDAC (Uganda) and SWITCH MEDIA (South Africa).
YES! THAT’S US is the directing collective of visual artists signed to Kampala based digital video production company, DEDDAC.
The film was written and produced by Mugisha Donald and James Tyler and stars Kyagulanyi ‘Bobi Wine’ Ssentamu, Bugembe ‘Buchaman’ Mark, Catherine ‘Scarlet’ Nakyanzi and Olem ‘Lot’ Bonny.
It was shot entirely in Kampala, Uganda from June to December 2006 and will be locally released in April 2007.
KAPO, BANA, KANYANKOLE and MULOKOLE are 4 youths that originally come from 4 regions of the country (EASTERN, CENTRAL, WESTERN, and NORTHERN respectively) but now live in a neighbourhood on the outskirts of the city in the “Central ‘Division’, particulary in ZONE B4. They are all aspiring musicians, with each character representing stereotypical characteristics of people from the region they come from.
Through a contact, they have been offered a performance slot at a pub in the city that is starting “open mic sessions” locally dubbed KARAOKE. Kapo quits his job and raises some money to buy a track (instrumental) on which him and his crew will perform, plus transport fare to the city. They are ambushed by “GRADUATED TAX Enforcement Officers” before they can get to the city. After this, they find themselves with no money and no instrumental. In their quest to get to the city, they experience obstacles that test their friendship and mission.
YES! THAT’S US.
