Without a Fight is a collaboration of the Center for Global Initiatives (CGI), Carolina for Kibera (CFK), and Chasing the Mad Lion Productions. The production team highlights the remarkable talent of this university. Producer Beth-Ann Kutchma (CGI staff, CFK board member) recruited director Jason Arthurs (Journalism ’03) after he directed a video profile of her Durham, NC based rock band Red Collar for the Raleigh News & Observer. To round out their production team, they enlisted story editor Mark Derewicz (research writer at UNC), co-director of photography Andrew Johnson (Journalism ’10) and designer Tripp Tuttle (Art '05, CGI staff).
The production of Without a Fight would not have been possible without Carolina for Kibera, a non-profit which exists to develop local leaders, catalyze positive change and alleviate poverty in the Kibera slum of Nairobi. CFK staff provided unprecedented access and resources to the production team in order to tell the story of Kibera youth who participate in their Sports Association and Champions Soccer League. To support the young leaders profiled in the film and the thousands more in Kibera, 100% of proceeds from Without a Fight go directly to support Carolina for Kibera programming.
