Films have the power to make people feel something. They engage, evoke emotion and encourage thought. Storytelling is at the heart of each and every one of our films.
Black Bean ‘Films for Change’ includes all of our work that is focussed on sharing stories and work being done that has a greater purpose, affecting change in the world. We have filmed a number of organisations working to address environmental and humanitarian issues. The work these organisations are doing benefits us all and we believe it’s important to share their work and to support them. This is the core of who we are and why we started Black Bean. Our first ‘film for change’ was about the SANParks Honorary Rangers in the Kruger National Park and their anti-poaching unit that work hard on the ground to protect rhinos that are under huge threat due to poaching.
We hope to create change by telling these stories, allowing these people to continue the work they are doing and receive support. You can be a part of this change and good work by watching our films, sharing them and choosing an organisation to support.
Together, we can highlight the good in the world and make sure it continues to happen.
