Description:

Duniya Juyi Juyi (which means "How Life Goes" in Hausa) is a 69-minute docudrama written, filmed, directed, and acted in by nine students from Qur'anic schools in Kano, Nigeria. Qur'anic school students, known as almajirai, have become convenient scapegoats for various social ills in Nigeria. This film shows the almajirai's own perspective on their education.

Hannah Hoechner, who produced the film in collaboration with the students, will be present.

Lunch will be served during the screening.

The screening is part of a day-long ISITA Perspectives Symposium: Educating Muslim Youth in Asia and Africa.  Find the details here.
