A new critic / portrait about In Search… / Beryl Magoko
A new critic about “In Search…” / portrait of Beryl Magoko in German by
Ebba Hagenberg- Miliu was published in Bonner Generalanzeiger on June, 5th 2020. Look for:

“In Search…” wakes up from ‘Corona hibernation’
“In Search …” will be screened in more German/European cities after ‘Corona hibernation’. More information will be available here soon.
Maybe even more important: We want to screen “In Search…” – with mobile cinema traveling to the remote areas – in countries and regions where FGM is still practised. For that we want to start with a pilot project in Kenya.
Later on – hopefully – the film will be screened in most of the relevant counties. Therefore different language versions of “In Search…” have to be made with voice over due to the fact, that a part of the audience will not be able to read the subtitels.
All this will need a lot of resources. Therefore we look for donors and partners – also partners in the countries where the film will be screened.
More information will follow.
