A European Union delegation branded EU Film Festival Malawi on Tuesday beamed a Spanish film Box 507 at Mzuzu University (Mzuni).
The film was screened as they commemorate this year’s EU film month.
The Spanish film addresses issues of corruption and land ownership in a Spanish setup and stars Antonio Resines and Jose Coronado.
The first of its kind, the event was organised as part of the 40 years of collaboration and as a chance to strengthen cultural relations in Malawi and their quest to engage with university and college students.
The grouping is also expected to screen a Swedish film later in the month at Chancellor College and another in Lilongwe.
In his remarks during the screening, leader of the EU delegation James Dolan said they organised the screening to show that corruption happens anywhere.
“We face similar challenges and there is need to combat corruption together,” Dolan said.
The EU also made a donation of three computers to Mzuni.
Mzuni Deputy Vice Chancellor Dr Loveness Kaunda expressed her appreciation for the donation.
Mzuzu University Theatre Arts Group (Mutag), curtainraised the screening with a performance of a play titled Final Faith Fools.
The EU also conducted a public debate at Mzuzu University last year titled Higher Education is Accessible to Everyone in Malawi.
