InfoFree Entrance


AfricAvenir and FNCC continue their "Inspiring Imaginations" film series featuring entertaining and educative African films for children. This time we screen two outstanding shorts from Kenya and Ethiopia.

“Zebu and The Photo Fish” (2011) by Zipporah Nyaruri, Kenya/Uganda, 12 min, 8-12 year olds, English spoken
Every morning 10 year old Zebu and his father have to give away the fish they catch to pay a debt. To Zebu, photo fish is what they fish until he decides to take matters in his own hands to get his family out of debt.

Lezare – For Today (2010) by Zelalem Woldemariam, Ethiopia, 15 min, 8-12 year olds, Amharic with English subtitles.
A homeless boy, Abush, wakes up hungry early in the morning in a small village. He starts to beg to buy bread but no one pays attention to him. The villagers are busy preparing for a tree-planting event. The film, based on an Ethiopian folktale, carries a powerful message about global warming, environmental protection, poverty and hunger.

Please join into the fun.
