"Inspiring Young Imaginations” – African Films for Children and Youth
In 2014, AfricAvenir Windhoek initiated "Inspiring Young Imaginations", a monthly African film series for children and youth. The idea originated from an experienced lack of access and opportunities for children to watch inspiring, entertaining and educative movies with African content. The films we screen are from all over the African continent and tell in an entertaining and educative way stories from the perspective of children and young people about African history, cultures, different identities, social realities, adventures and experiences. The screenings are followed by discussions about the film and how it relates to the lives of our young audience. We feel it is important for children and youth in Namibia to see movies they can relate to and identify themselves with; to see the beauty of African stories and experiences; to discover the diversity of the African continent; and to plant a seed in them, to want to tell their own stories too and trigger their own imagination in telling stories.
