Established in 1999, to date KMF Productions has produced thirty-five documentaries in thirty-four countries in Africa, Asia, and The Americas

With a title influenced by a Rory Gallagher song, its mainstay series What in the World? features compelling and profoundly moving stories of people whose lives have been framed by poverty and injustice.

In doing so, it challenges the sense of fatalism and inevitability that nothing can be done to alleviate that suffering and injustice.

All films have been broadcast in Ireland and some have been broadcast on terrestrial and cable stations in Great Britain, The United States, The Netherlands, Iran, The Middle East and Australia.

Currently (2013) we are filming in Paris, Mexico, New York, Cameroon and Uganda. This series will be broadcast on RTE One in November of this year.
