A unique chance to watch this sometimes funny, sometimes moving film from Malawi.
Mbeu Yosintha (Seeds Of Change) follows the characters of a village as they deal with the effects of climate change, poverty and lack of education and services.
The film (70mins) will be followed by a live Q&A with members of the production crew.
Colin Stevens - co-writer/director of the film (UK/Cambridgeshire)
Lemani Makina - Producer & Community Connector
Thankdiwe Nkhoma - Production Asst/Translator
Themes include new farming methods, deforestation, women's rights and domestic abuse. The film is currently enjoying new attention, thanks to Lemani who is now promoting the film with NGOs around Malawi who want to use it to support their development work with village communities.
Made by Purple Field Productions, a small UK charity specialising in films made in native languages and distributed to villages and small towns by pedal-power & solar cinema kits. This screening will be of special interest to those who want to know more about farming & climate crisis, international development and the social issues facing communities in Malawi (and the UK!)
Entry fee is FREE but we would like to suggest a donation to Purple Field Productions who are currently working with young filmmakers in Kasungu (central Malawi).
