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:

  1. 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.
  2. Jane Berry, co-founder of ColaLife and in charge of Business Development and Research for the ColaLife Operational Trial in Zambia
  3. Simon Berry, co-founder of ColaLife and project manager of the ColaLife Operational Trial in Zambia
  4. Claire Ward, the maker of the film (hopefully)

The Cola Road is an independent film made by Claire Ward.

For years, a conundrum has baffled visitors to developing countries: Coca-Cola is everywhere, but basic medicines are not.

The Cola Road documentary follows the ColaLife team in Zambia as they attempt to make an anti-diarrhoea kit as ubiquitous as Coca-Cola.

A trailer for the film is here:

All aspects of the film are beautifully produced. As an example, this is the Zambian tune that the credits roll to – Ambuya by Wezi – just to get you in the mood:
