Theatre International led by its Artistic Director Chancy Mauluka on Friday night premiered a movie titled Mwayi Wotsiriza at Golden Peacock Hotel.
Mwayi Wotsiriza is a film about sexual abuse of girls and working conditions of teachers in rural primary schools. In the film, a frustrated teacher ‘propositions’ a daughter of an economically vulnerable rural woman and impregnates her. The system, already baffled by inadequacy of teaching staff, has to find a way of disciplining him.
The one hour movie has since received a warm reception from people with many praising directors and producers for making a realistic and quality work which they said is a true representation of current plight of primary schools teachers and girls as well as how communities often respond to such situations.
Director of Basic Education in the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Joseph Chimombo was also present during the premiere and hailed Theatre International saying the film highlights all the challenges faced by the education sector at the moment.
Mauluka said the movie aims at inciting debate on how Malawi can effectively deal with some of these problems including on reporting channels when such issues arise and how communities can solve such problems. In the picture people watching the movie on Friday.
