Jessie Chisi is a Film Director, Screenwriter and Entrepreneur. She is a unique and self-motivated young woman in the field of filmmaking. She is a founder of Zambia Short Film Festival and young cinema in Zambia through which she trains 35 young filmmakers and entrepreneurs each year as way of eradicating youth unemployment. She believes film has the power to bring change and create sustainable industries.
Jessie and Coren are collaborating on a project to develop a short film based on Coren's book "What if it Just Started Raining?" The film will accompany the global launch of this campaign which they anticipate will take place in December 2015 in Lusaka, Zambia.
Working together on a project that has it's global beginning in the Republic of Zambia -- a beacon of peace on a continent known for conflict -- will add immense value to this campaign and one day they are convinced will attract the likes of Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington and Matt Damon for the big screen.
