Summary
The films in the Development Communications Workshop (DevCom) collection are the result of a creative collaboration between social scientists with teaching objectives and veteran filmmakers with great pride in their craft. These films were designed to enrich and support courses on international development. Unlike most documentaries that develop a story in a linear fashion toward a particular conclusion, these films present multiple points of view and many visual hooks that can further broaden discussion. For example, the Harvard Kennedy School commissioned If It Doesn't Rain to open a two-week course on poverty in southern Mexico. After seeing the film, the students were asked, Are these people poor? The film's rich content provides a fertile opportunity for them to debate this question and for their teacher to present poverty assessment frameworks. A central theme of all the films is poverty - its nature and varied approaches to its alleviation. Malawi's Green Revolution explores a massive agricultural outreach to all farmers; its radical redesign into a safety net; subsequent production collapse; then surging production through price subsidies Lifecycles, also set in Malawi, not only illustrates how HIV/AIDS exacerbates poverty, but also presents uplifting vignettes of individual courage. It's a Young Country! examines Turkey's dynamic economy and culture by using a bank's strategic planning deliberations to initiate and structure the story. Filmmaker: Charles Mann
