Offering a different kind of support
Purple Field Productions is not about offering monetary aid and assistance. We create film & media with partners to help their communities help themselves. This is why all our films are in native languages and thoroughly researched with native translators and local knowledge.
Purple Field Productions is a charitable production company. We want communities to feel able to approach us to discuss and plan their film ideas.
The difference we're making
Our films cover a wide variety of subjects. These are the most common ones that partners approach us with.
Health & Disability
Films have challenged stereotypes and stigma surrounding wheelchair users and people with disbability in Bangladesh & Cambodia. In Kenya we made a series of physiotherapy training DVDs for children with cerebral palsy. In Ghana we created an advocacy film that was used to lobby MPs to support the rights of children with cerebral palsy. In Malawi we have been instrumental in creating HIV/AIDS awareness films that medical staff & community workers tell us have made a huge difference to saving people's lives.
Agriculture, Environment & Climate Change
In recent years we have found that agriculture and the environment is fast becoming the main concern of many communities in poorer countries as they cope with changing weather patterns and an ever increasing pressure to grow crops with less rain. We have made documentaries and dramas targeting farming communities in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda & Senegal.
