Watch Africa: Colours of the Alphabet + Q&A (ctba)

Zambia/2016/80mins/ctba. Dir: Alastair Cole

We welcome back this celebration of African film which you can enjoy alongside African food, crafts, music and dance all day in the cinema foyer.

Steward, Elizabeth and M'barak are three school pupils in rural Zambia who struggle to make sense of an educational system where the language they speak at home is different from the language used in the classroom. An intimate and moving insight into language and childhood in Africa from the unique perspective of children at a time when nearly 40% of the world’s population lack access to education in their own language.

Join us for a 'Learning Through Film' education workshop on the use of film for education purposes led by Director Alastair Cole and Producer Nick Higgins.

Festival Pass: See all Watch Africa films for £20. Click here to book.
