Africa meets Africa launched 2015 with a very important event:
My Room at the centre of the Universe was screened under the stars to the Sutherland community members it features and who were part of its making.
It was a very emotional occasion and a highly successful evening!
Many people in the audience were heard to remark, over and over:
"Dis oor ons mense. "
"Hierdie film is met ons mense gemaak!"
(This is about our people. This film was made with our people!)
An elderly community member remarked:
"Mense dink niks gebeur in dorpies soos Sutherland nie. Maar hierdie film wys
alles gebeur hier. Net soos in die groot stede ! "
(People think nothing happens in small towns like Sutherland. But this film proves everything happens here, just like in the big cities)
