‘Liyana’ Screening and Q&A with Executive Producer Susan MacLaury
Liyana, winner of 33 awards including Best Documentary at both the Los Angeles and Miami Film Festivals, is a touching and unique film set in Swaziland (now Eswatini) in South Africa. Told by five children who were orphaned by the AIDS Epidemic, this extraordinary film uses animation and narrative to illustrate their plight. Liyana, a fictional character created by the children to tell their stories, perseveres through a perilous quest to save her young twin brothers. Ultimately hopeful, this is a visually beautiful and unforgettable film presented in a poetic and creative style. LIYANA has recently been nominated for the prestigious 2019 Cinema Eye Honors Award for Nonfiction Filmmaking for the Outstanding Achievement in Graphic Design or Animation Award.
