The documentary “Akiyaya, African stories of dreamers and entrepreneurs” produced by CAD Productions will be presented in Berlin by its producer Philippe Jochaud and thanks to the collaboration of Instituto Cervantes.
The event will take place on January 19 from 20:00 at the Kino Babylon Mitte theatre (Rosa-Luxemburg-Str. 30). The screening will be followed by an open discussion and debate that will delve into the issues raised in the documentary.
During 2014, to help spread the word amongst target audiences, the film was presented in Spain and Senegal, the countries where it was shot. Additionally, Akiyaya was also selected to participate in the 3rd African Cinema Festival organised by Kassumay Foundation in Sant Boi de Llobregat, at the 6th edition of the Unseen film festival Social Films in Bilbao and in the official section of XI Human Rights Film Festival of Barcelona.
