Film & Lunch: Malawi Freshwater Project
Description: Join us for free lunch and a Water First documentary film – “Malawi Freshwater Project.” Sponsored by National Alliance of PanAfrican Seminarians (NAPAS), Students of Color (SOC), and the Student Senate, the film is a presentation from FRESHWATER MALAWI founder Charles Banda. The 30-minute documentary film entitled “WATER FIRST: Reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)” will be viewed and Banda will be available for Q&A following the film.
The movie is a character-driven film directed by Amy Hart that conveys the importance of clean water and sanitation in addressing all major global issues and achieving the MDGs set forth by the UN to reduce poverty in developing nations. Through the inspiring story of Charles Banda – a humble, local Malawian fireman turned waterman who has provided clean water to hundreds of thousands of fellow Malawians, WATER FIRST is a personal story with global significance. The film has been shown at numerous film festivals and water conferences around the world.
“WATER FIRST gets to the heart of the global water and sanitation crisis,” writes David Douglas, Founder of Water Advocates. “Through the story of one man in a single African country, Hart documents how development springs from access to safe drinking water. With filmmaking that may save lives, Hart chronicles water’s link to health, girls’ education, environmental protection, women’s empowerment and economic productivity.”
