"Naija Beta": a film about MIT students on Thursday, April 27, 3:30-5:00pm Building 3-270
The Division of Student Life and the International Students Office invite all MIT staff, faculty, and students to a screening of the award-winning documentary: "Naija Beta." Produced and directed by MIT alum Arthur Musah '04, the film follows a team of Nigerian and Nigerian-American MIT students as they head home one summer to teach technology to high schoolers through a competitive robotics camp in Lagos. As they seek to contribute to a new and better Nigeria, their ideals are tested by reality. Following the screening there will be a discussion and Q & A session with Arthur and a preview of his next film: "One Day I Too Go Fly".

Back in late 2015, several DSL staff worked with Arthur in a focus group to help edit the film. The film premiered at the 2016 Pan African International Film Festival in Cannes. Since then, it has gone on to win the following honors:
Best Documentary Feature - Urban Mediamakers Film Festival 2016
Best Documentary Short - Roxbury International Film Festival 2016
Achievement in Documentary Film Award - Silicon Valley African Film Festival 2016
High Output Director Award - Arlington International Film Festival 2016
Best Humanitarian Film (Nominee) - Rapidlion: The South African International Film Festival 2017

NB. The Lecture Series Committee is also sponsoring a showing on Tuesday, April 25 from 7 to 8:30PM in 26-100.
