The Film

wiwanana_scomposto-ok

A film by IACOPO PATIERNO

A group of five Italians and a Mozambican go round the forests of Mozambique in search of five amateur actors. The objective is to take them to Italy, write a comedy on health information together, and finally organise a tour around the villages of North Mozambique.
Will they manage in spite of their cultural differences?
This is the story of Wiwanana, or how dialogue is the most powerful weapon in the fight for change.

And what if we found a group of actors in north Mozambique? We could work with them and create a theatre performance with health information that they could act out in their villages? Theatre is good for you!

Life Stories

Tiziana Freti, counsellor for the project “Il teatro fa bene” (“Theatre so good”), pieced together the life stories of seven Mozambican actors taking part in the show that will be performed in Mozambique. Reading these stories is thought-provoking. They give us a glimpse into the life of a country about which so little is known, both in terms of the history and customs. Adelino, Ana Bela and the others tell us how their passion for theatre started and about their childhood. Enjoy reading about them!
