This is the first festival submission for this film.

“Adama’s Dream” is a short evangelistic gospel film designed to appeal to the animistic Muslims of Northern Sierra Leone. We made the film with a voice-over narration that could be replaced with widely spoken languages in Sierra Leone: Krio, Mende and Themne. Since its release over a year ago, it has been well received and widely distributed in Sierra Leone.
