Kulinga Mawa (2018)

Kulinga Mawa is a documentary about population growth in Malawi. Its astronomical average birth rate of 5,6 per mother, and the fact that girls start delivering babies by the age of 15, is the country’s most serious threat. This film, which title means ‘For the sake of tomorrow’, will be taken on an extensive tour through rural villages in order to educate people about family size and spark debate about the issue.

The film is currently in post-production and will become available in the summer of 2018. It is financed by the permanent representation of the European Union in the country.
