The film is animated with inspiration from personal interviews and historical photographs.
- What can we learn from such stories of courage?
- Can they inspire dialogue across generations?
- Can they break down one-dimensional stereotyped representations of Norwegian-Somalis?
The event will include a panel discussion and music.
We will also launch the Uffo comic book in Somali and English at the event.
