CIFFR Education Program 2019

Every year, thousands of students flock the theater for the special education program for elementary and high school students. Lesson plans (available in Dutch) are made available to the participating schools with background information and assignments.

Groups 6, 7, and/or 8 (Funderend Onderwijs)
If you could make someone’s dream come true, would you? For the sister of 9-year-old Jo the answer is without a doubt yes. Jo is in fact very ill, but has big dreams of ever being able to fly like a superhero. Supa Modo is a valuable addition to the superhero genre, with themes such as escapism and mourning, and Jo’s amazing powers and those of the people around her will amaze many (Language: Swahili – English subtitles) 

Secondary Education (Voortgezet onderwijs)
Rafiki tells the story of two Kenyan girls, Kena and Ziki. For them, the life that has already been mapped out for them doesn’t satisfy them. Their desires do not fit in with the plans that the people around them have for them, and as soon as they fall in love with each other, they have to face a difficult decision: true love or safety? (Language: Swahili & English – English subtitles) 

Films previously screened in the education program include Wizard (2018), Landfill Harmonic (2017), De Boskampi’s (2016),  The Idol (2016), Girlhood (2015), Pelo malo (2014), and Nairobi Half Life (2013).
