Free Film Screening/Panel: Water Issues in Africa & Bangladesh
Join us on Wed, April 11th at 7:30 for a free film screening and discussion in the coffeehouse. Seating is open but limited to 25.
Meridian Hill Pictures and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting present a selection of new short documentaries on the topic of water and sanitation in Nigeria, Ghana and Bangladesh produced through an innovative collaborative reporting project.
Join two Pulitzer Center grantees — Nigerian journalist Ameto Akpe and award-winning news documentary producer Stephen Sapienza — as they present their short pieces and lead a discussion on their coverage in West Africa. The segments look at issues of inadequate access to safe drinking water in the region and harmful effects resulting in waterborne illness and death. The initiative matched two international journalists with four local journalists to produce the series of reports to be published and broadcast in West African as well as international media outlets. Following the screening, Peter Sawyer of the Pulitzer Center will moderate a discussion with the journalists about their work.
