Cameroon: Participatory Video for Information-Sharing Between Indigenous Communities

  May 1, 2014

This project will train 12 Baka and Bagyeli indigenous community members to use digital video to share information between far flung, difficult to access villages regarding the impacts of a major new mine and railway project in their home territory. The project will result in the production and circulation of short films that will educate community members about issues such as water toxicity. The circulation of videos online and through a traveling cinema will facilitate inter-community communication and cooperation around issues generated by the mine project.
