Radio Taboo a trans media project including the production of a documentary film and development of a community radio station. The film follows Issa Nyaphaga, persecuted political cartooist who returns to his small village in West Africa to build the community radio station. How can art change lives? How can media aid those in need? Radio Taboo asks these questions as Issa works to educate his community about subjects that are often taboo to talk about. By empowering citizen journalists to report on public health, women's issues, LGBT tolerance, and more he hopes to empower his village.
The film is now in post production and the radio station 96.0 FM RADIO TABOO is !ON THE AIR! as of July 2017!!
Issa Nyaphaga grew up in Nditam, Cameroon, a village without access to running water, electricity, medicine or education. His work publishing the top news stories, cartoons and comics for a large illiterate population landed him in jail multiple times. Learn more ---

Radio Taboo is a non-profit film and a development project. We have completed building a solar powered station in the rainforest of Cameroon. We are now working to complete the documentary film, which we hope will inspire others to use art for change.
