Colours of the Alphabet

Colori dell’alfabeto, United Kingdom, 2016


An inspiring, bittersweet story about language and childhood in Africa.
Steward, Elizabeth and M’barak are three first time school pupils in rural Zambia, struggling to make sense of an educational system where the language they speak at home is different from the language used in the classroom, and slowly discovering that their tongue is no longer their own.
When nearly 40% of the world’s population lack access to education in their own language, the film offers an intimate, moving and often humorous insight into a global phenomenon from the unique perspective of three innocent children.
