We Are Family is a 30 minute film to raise awareness of kidney donation in the African Caribbean community. Directed by Joy Francis and produced by Dela Idowu, the film tells the story of 21 year old Darren Williams, the youngest of three siblings (brotoher Andy, sister Yemi) who discovers that his kidneys are failing. The options available to him are dialysis or a life saving living kidney donation, which means a long waiting list and no guarantees. Faced with this daunting challenge, Darren, Andy and Yemi undergo an emotional rollercoaster ride to find a living kidney donor, a reality facing hundreds of black people due to a lack of organ donors from the African Caribbean community.
This health promotion film with a twist was commissioned by Gift of Living Donation and made by Words of Colour Productions.
