Please join us for a special presentation from the filmmakers of the documentary film Rose & Nangabire on
USING MEDIA AS A TOOL FOR
EDUCATION AND ADVOCACY
Rose Mapendo was separated from her daughter, Nangabire, when ethnic violence came to her village in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Over a decade later, mother and daughter are reunited in the United States. Through the eyes of this remarkable pair, Rose & Nangabire explores the effects of conflict on women, and the role of women in bringing peace and reconciliation to war-torn countries.
Screening video footage from Rose & Nangabire, the filmmakers and the film’s cultural consultant will discuss the use of media in activism and advocacy.
