Three film screenings at Kabafest…

At Kaduna Books and Arts Festival 2018, we will be screening three fascinating movies: Swallow, An initiative of the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua FoundationAlias Story by Nuhu Dalyop  and Uprooted by Ummi Bakar.

 

More about Swallow…

Swallow explores challenges to food security resulting from our changing climate, inadequate infrastructure and traditional agricultural practices. From the declining number of fish in the Niger Delta to underweight cattle in the north and insufficient rice, wheat and vegetables, the way we feed ourselves is not sustainable. We do not grow, breed or use the land efficiently enough to support our ever-growing population.

Supported by the European Union and the Open Society Initiative for West Africa, the film features inspiring stories to galvanize Nigerians to address challenges, opportunities and solutions to our food security.
