The community near the rural school (where we had filmed in 2012) came together this week to celebrate the school and the multi-ethnic heritage of the student population. With delicious food, dancing, student-prepared skits and everyone dressed to show off their cultural backgrounds; the community of 300 came out to show their support for the school. You may recall that the students that appeared in TALL AS THE BAOBAB TREE were the very first in their villages to attend school.
We were honored guests. TALL AS THE BAOBAB TREE is still being purchased by schools and libraries so we were pleased to contribute to the festivities.
