Scenarios from Africa films in Hausa and other African languages

Posted by hausaonline on Sunday, February 14, 2010

Global Dialogues is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting excellence in education and communication about HIV/AIDS. On YouTube, I found a collection of short films on HIV/AIDS in Hausa language produced by them. The films are based on ideas written by young Africans and shot by the continent’s premier directors, including Newton Aduaka of Nigeria.

Similar collections exist in other African languages, including Bambara, Ewe, Fon, Igbo, Kinyarwanda, Lingala, Moore, Pulaar, Swahili, Twi, Wolof and Yoruba.

They can be watched online or downloaded (some of the files are quite large).

A 44 minute documentary on the creation of these films can be found on YouTube:

Here is one of the Hausa films:

You will find more of  these films in my Hausa video clip collection.
