Mobile Cinema is created to drive social change in communities affected by war. DTJ’s localized films and facilitated workshops create a space that encourages encounters between people with opposing views, and generates the possibility for new connections, perspectives and discoveries. DTJ Mobile Cinema programs have tackled issues like reintegrating formerly abducted children into their communities, relieving psychological distress, and reconciling victims and perpetrators. Film builds on the strong narrative storytelling culture in the places we work where people learn from each other through shared lessons that are passed down. Since stories are a universal language, they transcend other teaching tools and are exceptionally powerful instruments for reversing harmful ideologies and engendering cohesion, solidarity and hope.
