Unearthed Karoo (solar-powered) Roadshow
Following Unearthed‘s success at the Sheffield International Documentary Festival and the Encounters International Film Festival, the Unearthed team will now embark on a community outreach project and solar-powered roadshow in the Karoo, South Africa.
Led by Karoo born director, Jolynn Minnaar, who has carried out over 18 months of research across three continents, the Unearthed team will take the film to those who need it most – the communities caught in the middle of the heated fracking debate.
The Unearthed Bertha BRITDOC Karoo Roadshow aims to empower local citizens with firsthand information from gas drilling areas in the United States and encourage debate around the contentious topic.
Selected by Bertha BRITDOC as one of eight ambitious films from across the world that have the ability to achieve real change, Unearthed is a grateful recipient of the Connect Fund that helped the team travel through the semi arid, rural area.
Screenings will take place between 9 July and 15 July 2014 in various Karoo towns and communities including Prince Albert, Nieu-Bethesda, Graaff Reinet, Victoria West, Murrysburg and Beaufort West.
The Unearthed Team look forward to extending their roadshows to reach more communities.
