Exclusive Preview of the Awra Amba Experience in Norway18 Oct 2013, Posted by Presentations, Project update in
After more than 3 years of hard work, we finally have a first draft of the Awra Amba Experience web documentary. We were kindly invited by Films From the South Foundation to present our work in progress as an Exclusive Preview to Norwegian audiences. Films From the South is a well-known and respected film festival in Oslo, focusing on films from the global south, now in its 23rd year.
Apart from the festival screening, which was attended by over 100 people, during our stay in Oslo we also presented our project to 4 Norwegian school groups as an educational workshop. We were very impressed by the students’ level of engagement with the topic as well as their English language command. Many teachers wanted to bring the web project into the classroom to use as curriculum material, but unfortunately the project is not yet ready to be launched online. We are working hard to achieve an online version that we will launch hopefully by autumn 2014.
