The documentary by Angela R Pashavan seeks to showcase how different people from different communities are brought together by absolute poverty.
Pashavan is also hoping to change the perception of the world’s third largest slum which he said had been painted negatively by a photo on the National Geographic in 2008 during Kenya’s post election violence which portrayed it as a “dangerous place”.
“But these are my people; they know and trust me to bring in a group of Street Artists that really care about inspiring them to keep moving forward in life,” Pashavan writes in the crowd funding site.
In the documentary the storyline will feature a number of slum artists who will proceed to create their masterpieces from scratch in the full glare of the public.
Once the documentary is complete it will be showcased in various galleries and will be submitted for various independent film festivals.
Pashavan in this round of pitching hopes to ride from previous successes including Kibera: Walls for peace last November, a project promoting peace ahead of the 2013 Kenyan election which raised US$6,182 and overshot the required funding by 23 percent.
After that The Ubuntu project by Nathan Yi managed to get 129 per cent funding in January this year.
There has also been a few flops including The United states of Kibera project in 2011 that was not successful receiving US$3556 of its US$5000 budget.
