Lutteuses 47 in movie theatre!

Next Wednesday, November 13th, my documentary “Lutteuses 47” will be screened at Cinema Palestrina in Milano. The film is about the project against TBC started by Stop TB Italia in Senegal. The project, that will last three years, provides among other things the training of a group of women on tuberculosis. The aim is to raise awareness towards the disease and to overcome the stigma, with the ultimate goal of controlling the spread of the disease in Diofior health district, in the Sine Saloum region.

With my heart full of joy, positivity and energy I came back from from Senegal. Great people, beautiful women. Now the venture begins: more than 40 hours of footage to study for the construction of a documentary able to present – at least a little – this beautiful country and the people. Let’s start!

The two training courses on tuberculosis ended today. They were held for the women of the villages in Diofior district, Senegal. Tomorrow the festival of villages and Djilor Yayeme begins. Another week in this wonderful country.
