Santano Productions was born in March of 2021 out of the collaboration between two creative individuals, Henrique Sungo from Angola and Filipe Anjos from Sao Tome and Principe.
The name Santano is a combination of Sao Tome and Angola.
This represents our love, respect, and commitment to their culture and community.
Both living in London, UK we decided to work on a project together and submit it to a film festival, a short documentary about the Covid19 pandemic.
We won the festival in the category of Best Short Documentary Jury Award. Since then we released several short-form projects, won international film festivals, traveled the world for different film/cinema events, and produced video content for celebrities. More importantly, we had the pleasure of collaborating with amazing, intentional, and humble people from all over the world.

'I want to make a documentary to bring and show the reality that people know but are too afraid and shy to narrate or highlight. I want a paradigm shift'.
