Case Study II: "Utopia in Ethiopia — The Awra Amba Story"

Thursday, 20 October 2011, 14:30 - 16:30
Passage Kinos/Wintergarten

The transmedia project in progress based on the short documentary “Awra Amba” is been developed including an interactive 360° web documentary, a feature-length film and an interactive exhibition. It tells the remarkable story of Awra Amba, a rural community in Ethiopia, which have taken their society into their own hands. By making women equal with men, and discarding religion and ancient traditions they attempt to create a life free of inequality, poverty and hunger. A two-way Twitter debate is enabled with the audience and members from the Awra Amba community for a 6-week period following the launch.
