For AMREF we did a 3 year trajectory in participatory video trainings. It started with two monitoring and evaluation trainings in Kenya. And a training of trainers in 2011 and 2012 in Kenya and Uganda. In addition there whas an editing training and an evaluation documentary on the entire trajectory in 2012. The video shown here is called "Taking control of your own health" and is the title of one of the outcomes of these trainings. It is the result of a participatory video training with AMREF staff about a Community Based Health Management Information System (CBHMIS II) in Makueni District, Kenya.

 

 

AMREF helpt de gezondheid van vrouwen en kinderen in Afrika te verbeteren. Zij zijn de grootste Afrikaanse ontwikkelingsorganisatie en hebben vestigingen over de hele wereld, ook in Nederland. In 2010 kreeg de Nederlandse vestiging met hulp van PSO de mogelijkheid om binnen AMREF een traject te starten voor interne capaciteitsopbouw. Twee jaar later, was het tijd om dat traject te evalueren. Zij kozen daarbij voor de vorm van een documentaire. AMREF vroeg Stichting FLL en Filmdok deze documentaire te maken. Met beeldmateriaal gedraaid in Kenia, Tanzania, Ethiopie, Uganda, London en Nederland een prachtig internationaal project, waar we best een beetje trots op zijn.

Lion Guardians - a participatory approach in Kenyan Maasailand.
In collaboration with the local communities of Mbirikani ranch, the Living with Lions project, and the Maasailand Preservation Trust a programme called “Lion Guardians” was initiated in October 2006.
The overall idea was generated by Maasai warriors (murrans) and elders through various discussion groups in the past two years on Mbirikani Group Ranch. The Lion Guardian’s programme attempts to reduce the pressure on lions by employing their greatest enemy to conserve them rather than kill them. The Lion Guardians have two major duties:
1) to monitor lions and other carnivore movements so to protect them
2) aid their communities in various ways.
The programme has been very successful so far.

This documentary, created by FLL, shows two lion guardians, Olubi and Melubo who both have killed lions and participated in many traditional lion hunts and follows their everyday activities. Leela Hazzah, a carnivore conservationist, explains the background and purpose of the programme. (10 min, 45 mb).

In 2007 Youth Incentives, together with partners in six countries, undertakes the RAP-song project: young people from all over the world are making a RAP-song of issues concerning their Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights. The first RAP-song has been realised in the Philippines in February 2007

At the request of Colline Theatre Productions FLL filmed the preview of ‘Mijn status is positief’ (My status is positive) at the Dutch Aids Congress in December 2006. This is a play developed and directed by Colline Theatre Productions based on a book by Annemie Struyf en Lieve Blancquart. The play tackles issues of being HIV-positive or having aids and the consequences of this disease. It stimulates people to think about this life-threatening disease and encourages the viewer to be non-judgemental in subsequent discussions around the topic. ‘Mijn status is positief’ is appropriate for all theatres and other spaces, like schools and cultural and youth performing stages. In September 2007 the film of ‘Mijn status is positief’ was officially released.

Domestic violence is widely acknowledged as a serious problem. However, few people are aware that the incidence of violence in lesbian relationships is as frequent as in heterosexual relationships. Various research indicates the occurrence of inter-partner violence in one out of every four or five lesbian couples. In late 2006 COC Nijmegen invited us to make a documentary about violence in lesbian relationships. To provide the material for the film we interviewed five people. Two were victims of violence in lesbian relationships, one is a researcher and two are professionals who work in this field. Lisette works in a refugee shelter and Sandra treats perpetrators of violence who have come into conflict with the law, or have been convicted.

The documentary highlights two themes, the difficulties that professionals have with recognising violence in lesbian relationships and the difficulty that victims have in accessing healthcare and legal support. The documentary was first distributed on a small scale, but interest has snowballed and now there are two organisations that use the documentary as a tool to train professionals on a national level in Holland.
Because of privacy reasons, we will not show the entire interviews with the victims, online.
