On Saturday night (24/8/13) at the 2013 Action On Film Festival in Monrovia, California, Claire Ward won Best Director (Documentary) for her film The Cola Road, made as an MA student, as she followed the ColaLife team in Zambia as they set-up a project to try and make a humble anti-diarrhoea kit – the Kit Yamoyo – as ubiquitous as Coca-Cola in remote rural communities. Congratulations Claire! Here’s the trailer for the documentary.
