Ubuntu - Zulu word commonly translated: I am because we are.

South African human rights activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu describes Ubuntu as “the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness… We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World.”


Motion pictures are theĀ coalescenceĀ of thousands of years of communication techniques. Visual and aural unite to create a unique art form that has been in existence for only just over 100 years, but has revolutionized every communication medium that came before and after.

The Internet continues to be transformed by video and video continues to be transformed by the Internet. In our hyper-connected global village, online video is emerging as the ultimate form of storytelling. Ubuntu Pictures seeks to harness the medium to entertain, inspire and ultimately activate.
