Documentary ‘Namibia Nine’ premiere
Saturday, February 28, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Location: Karen Hille Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

The film, created by a team of PLU filmmakers, explores the impact that access to education can make in the life of an individual, even in the face of an oppressive regime. Over the course of five years in the 1990s, 100 young Namibian leaders studied at various Lutheran colleges in the United States as a post-apartheid strategy to mobilize for the country’s independence. Nine of those young leaders studied at, and graduated from, PLU. The PLU filmmakers investigated the influence of colonization, religion and denial of access to education during South African rule. They also discovered how the desire to empower others from half a world away can have tremendous impact on creating a vibrant, democratic and free society only 20 years later.

The filmmakers make regular updates on production progress on their social-media accounts: FacebookTwitter, Instagram and WordPress.
