The Film

Created by Glasgow-based Scrumptious Productions, Barefoot in Business is a 45 minute documentary following the fortunes of Uganda's growing band of business women as they defy the statistics, stereotypes and credit restrictions and compete for the prestigious Female Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.

From the Barefoot straw bag designer all the way through to the country's ever first female funeral director, this is a film that aims to present an alternative and empowering portrait of Africa - a world away from Aid and AIDS - and reveal what life is really like as a business woman in 21st century Uganda.
