Ivory Coast, A United Africa| 19mins
Director: Frederic Louradour | Producer: Art of Living Productions
Focus Years: 2007 | Country: Germany
This film tells the story of ethnic tension and the atrocious violence that has emanated from it in Ivory Coast. Ethnic rivalries and conflicting claims made on land have led to a serious problem in Ivory Coast for some time. The Art of Living Foundation is an organization that is known for going into trouble spots to bring about conflict resolution. It has introduced its Youth Leadership Training Program (YLTP) in the country, and between 2005 and 2007 has trained nearly 100 youths from opposing ethnic groups, in the spirit of fostering peace and celebrating diversity. The film tracks some of the youths that have taken the program from the initial feelings of mistrust and division upon commencing the program, to the gradual warming and opening of hearts-and the recognition of kinship-by the end, to the wonderful service projects that the young people go on to undertake, as a kind of restitution of past wrong doings.
