S+L announces the premiere screenings and broadcast debut of its documentary A New Leaf
. Screenings will take place in five cities across Canada and the world broadcast premiere will air exclusively on S+L TV.
In the summer of 2012, a food crisis struck West Africa in a region called the Sahel. S+L’s Kris Dmytrenko travelled to Niger to learn about the crisis. Why was it happening? What were Nigeriens doing about it? And how was the world trying to help? Dmytrenko witnessed the efforts of Caritas Niger
, a Catholic development organization endorsed by the local bishops. Their projects were supported by the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace
and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank
Development and Peace will be hosting a series of premiere screenings across Canada beginning at the end of February and continuing into early March. Cities include Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Victoria. The world television premiere will take place on Thursday, March 7. Visit the A New Leaf webpage
