Africa through the lens of Chapman filmmakers

July 15, 2010

Fire up the TiVo or just stay up for this one — it’s a Friday, after all — because we know it will be worthwhile. Destination: Africa 2009, a series of documentaries produced by Chapman University students that aims to bring visibility to the work of non-governmental organizations in Cameroon, Africa airs at 11:30 p.m. Friday, July 23 on KOCE.

The three documentaries were produced by an interdisciplinary team of students from Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, Chapman School of Law and Wilkinson College of Humanities and Social Sciences that traveled to Cameroon in June 2009. The films include Shadows In The Forest, which focuses on efforts to assist native “pygmy” peoples, Eye To Eye, which documents efforts to protect native primate species, and Notre Joie, Notre Vie, which profiles a group fighting sex-trafficking.

The project was led by Jeff Swimmer, associate professor, Dodge College, and was profiled in the Spring 2010 issue of Chapman Magazine.
