Guided by the fear of his present being forgotten, and tired of outside voices being the only ones telling his home country’s history, Tyson Conteh decided not to let history repeat itself. Living in Sierra Leone, he was experiencing the Ebola outbreak first-hand: the pain, the deaths of family and friends, the grief, the destructive nature of tragedies that tear whole communities apart. As one of the only people with access to a film camera, and with his mind set on a mission, Tyson filmed his way through Makeni, one of the largest cities in Sierra Leone, capturing the harrowing effects of sickness on his community and the lives around him.
