LIYANA Film Screening: A Fairytale from Swaziland

LIYANA Film Screening: A Fairytale from Swaziland

This screening will be held at the Parkway Theater at 5 W North Ave, Baltimore, MD 21201. The screening is free, buses to the event from Renaissance Hotel provided but no buses back. Join us for a free screening of an inspiring new film. Liyana tells the story of a Swazi girl who embarks on a dangerous quest to rescue her young twin brothers. This animated African tale is born in the imaginations of five orphaned children in Swaziland who collaborate to tell a story of perseverance drawn from their darkest memories and brightest dreams. Their fictional character’s journey is interwoven with poetic and observational documentary scenes to create a genre-defying celebration of the transformative power of storytelling. Filmmaker Aaron Kopp will be in attendance for a Q&A following the screening.

The screening is free for National Guild for Community Arts Education conference delegates. Show your conference badge to Theater staff upon arrival.
