The screening will be followed by a Q&A Panel chaired by Peter Day, the BBC’s Global Business Correspondent who visited one of ColaLife’s target communities in June this year. He reported on his visit here: ColaLife: Turning profits into healthy babies.
The following people will be on the Q&A panel:
- Albert Saka the manager of the frontline activities in Zambia and the Zambian star of the film. This will be Albert’s first trip to the UK.
- Jane Berry, co-founder of ColaLife and in charge of Business Development and Research for the ColaLife Operational Trial in Zambia
- Simon Berry, co-founder of ColaLife and project manager of the ColaLife Operational Trial in Zambia
- Claire Ward, the maker of the film (hopefully)
The Cola Road is an independent film made by Claire Ward.
