Liyana now screening in African schools using solar power!
In April, Sunshine Cinema in partnership with Internews and Melon High School, hosted their first community based free solar powered screening of Liyana in Gweru, Zimbabwe.
Per Sunshine Cinema, “after the screening the audience was very touched by the story of Liyana, and some of them related more with the story because it dealt more with issues of being an orphan and not having any support structure but most of them gained a lot of strength and wisdom from Liyana’s actions and determination.”

Inspired by the children’s darkest memories and brightest dreams, their fictional character’s journey reveals parallels between her fate and that of the young storytellers.
