The women behind Uganda’s local content appreciation revival

The appreciation for local shows and films is currently at an all-time high. With the dominance of international shows gradually diminishing, Ugandans are cautiously learning to watch and appreciate local shows. Slowly, these shows have begun to curve out a place in popular culture. Doreen Mirembe, a producer, and director of local TV drama “DamaLie” is one of the ladies who have come to the forefront in the film industry. With her production house, Amani Films, she has managed to redefine the roles that women occupied outside of acting. Through her stewardship and guidance, Damalie has started to garner attention because of the show’s precise storytelling and incisive portrayal of characters by the cast, including winning Accolades in the last close to one year.
