Pride of Katanga

Pride of Katanga is the story of Hellen Balekeh, Uganda's first female boxer. By day, she trains and hustles to provide for 17 street girls and kids; by night, she plays the role of protector –– and sometimes, vigilante. Hellen is on a mission to protect and save young girls who live in Katanga, the worst slum in Kampala, from the abuse that runs rampant there, abuse she has tragically experienced herself.

A passion project of SJ Finlay that he has been working on since February of 2018.

It is currently being submitted to film festivals around the world.
