African Film Series presents "Living with Hunger"

As part of the Global Studies degree program's African Film Series, Penn State Berks will present Living with Hunger on Wednesday, March 18, at 1:15 p.m. in room 101 of the Franco Building. The film is free and open to the public.

In this British independent television production, Sorious Samura, a journalist of Sierra Leonean descent, moves into an Ethiopian village to experience hunger firsthand. Over a five-week period, Samura often finds himself eating only a handful of weeds a day, a daily reality for more than 40 million Africans. In his unique style of filmmaking, Samura questions how the world can expect Africa to develop when so many Africans are engaged in a daily struggle to survive.

For more information about the African Film Series, contact Dr. Randall Fegley, Assistant Professor of History and co-coordinator of the Global Studies degree program, at 610-396-6092 or via e-mail at raf8@psu.edu.
