CONGO (BRAZZAVILLE): UNFPA-produced Gender TV Miniseries Nominated For Film Festival

Les Depeches de Brazzaville reported on 19 April on the nomination of the UNFPA-produced TV miniseries entitled "Les Boulistes" to the Pan African Film Festival, held from 17-21 April, in Cannes. Produced by UNFPA with the intent of denouncing gender inequality and promoting women's rights, the popular TV miniseries is aired on Congo National Television and satellite TV to millions of viewers in Congo and worldwide. The series has previously been presented by UNFPA's David Lawson at other international film festivals. Mr. Lawson is confident that UNFPA's communication strategy "Media for Development," aimed at reaching millions of people through mass media and behaviour change messages, is paying off saying, "Maternal mortality and HIV/AIDS prevalence rates are down in Congo and gender equality has never been so high on the national political agenda, with a gender parity law in the making."
