A short film about a Malawian Video Editor and DJ who does not have hands is among the finalists for the “Focus on Ability” (FOA) international short firm awards in Australia.

The film titled “See me See Me Abilities” is a story of 28 year-old Sautso Ndalama, a trusted video editor and club DJ who   uses his feet and legs.

Mcdonald Nyirenda who is “See Me See Abilities” filmmaker urged Malawians to vote for the film because a win will help Ndalama achieve his goals.

“Voting for his film, you will help Sautso achieve his dream of establishing and owning quality video studio,” said Nyirenda.
