About this entry

In response to the global social and political unrest  of 2019 (Catalonia, Haiti, Ecuador, Chile, Bolivia, Colombia, Lebanon, France etc) and the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020, we wanted to give coverage and attention to what was happening in a visually interesting way that would reach a massive audience via social media without compromising on providing context.

By rapid production of viral videos, images, albums and infographics with elaborate, insightful and punchy captioning, we were able to become one of the main international English-speaking outlets for content and information on protest movements and political developments happening in Haiti, Ecuador, Chile, Bolivia, Colombia and France and were a prominent outlet among the target audience that gave international coverage to the Black Lives Matter movement, reaching, informing and engaging millions.

With our short docs like "Chile Awakens: The End Of The Neoliberal Miracle" and "Minneapolis Uprising: No Justice, No Peace" we aimed to provide our audience with on the ground perspectives, context and analysis.
