Salt + Light Announces the Cross-Canada Premiere Screenings of the Documentary Film “A New Leaf”

Salt + Light announces the cross-Canada premiere screenings of the documentary film A New Leaf.

 
PRLog - Feb. 21, 2013 - TORONTO, Canada -- TORONTO – Salt + Light announces the cross-Canada premiere screenings of the documentary film A New Leaf.

In the summer of 2012, a food crisis struck West Africa in a region called the Sahel. Salt + Light Television’s Kris Dmytrenko travelled to Niger to learn about the crisis. Why was it happening? What were Nigeriens doing about it? And how was the world trying to help? Dmytrenko witnessed the efforts of Caritas Niger, a Catholic development organization endorsed by the local bishops. Their projects were supported by the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

Development and Peace will be hosting a series of free premiere screenings across Canada. After the film, there will be a panel discussion about the documentary, food security, and development issues in the Sahel region of West Africa. The panel will feature special guest Father Isidore Ouedraogo, Executive Secretary of Caritas Burkina Faso.
