SESSION: Mediating Empowerment

Tuesday 22 June
Roundtable discussion on this topic: 16:15-18:00


2019 | 49’ | Ethiopia
Thera Mjaaland

In this documentary film some of the female and male youth who took part in an experimental research project on competing norms surrounding sexual and reproductive health in Ethiopia, reflect on what they have learned from their participation. My rationale for involving urban and rural, female and male secondary school students (aged 15-22) in the production and dissemination of arts- and action-research-inspired research-based edutainment dramas, was that youth cannot wait for our research to be published. They need to be involved now! Through the edutainment drama, Choices & Consequences, Part 1-4, on love, contraceptive use and abortion, and which transgress the general silence surrounding sexuality in this context, I wanted to create an enabling environment for youth to acquire correct reproductive health information as well as encourage reflection. The dramas also generated data on gender norms and sexuality when discussion them with students, parents, teachers, health workers and religious leaders.
