We had a great visit to a source community today where Leo and I ran a screening of a ten minute IJM film and a focus group to discuss.
Many thanks to our wonderful participants who gave their honest and insightful feedback.
You can watch the film here.
We are seeking to learn what kind of impression this film (intended for an American audience) would make in a source community (an area where children are often trafficked from). We would like to know if it is possible to make some adjustments so we can utilize it in prevention work.
It was filmed at Lake Volta last year. I got to help with pre-filming location scouting and finding locals to participate, so it is really fun to see it come full circle.
So far the reception was extremely positive, but we will need to repeat in other contexts.
What are your thoughts on the film? I’d love to hear them in the comments below.
