Upcoming Events:

"Elle Travaille, Elle Vit!" is having another screening; this time for a weekly documentary film series at the University of Georgia in Athens. The second film of the evening will be "The Iron Triangle - the Carlyle Group exposed". The event is being currated by Ash Sechler, a senior majoring in New Media at UGA. It will start at 8:00pm in the New Art School on campus.

Also, on Monday, October 20th, P.O.P. will officially be in New York. We are looking forward to getting our own domain name but until then, bare with us as we try to keep you abreast of all our company updates.

In Transition...

P.O.P. is going Stateside. We're moving production opperations to New York City this month and hopefully, it will go smoothly. Recently, we have had two major events: The Premier of "Elle Travaille, Elle Vit!" ("She Works, She Lives!") followed up by a question and answer session with the director at the American Club in Dakar for members of various international development organizations and schools. We had a second screening of the film at the U.S. Embassy in Dakar's screening room. Guests included the U.S. Embassador, various Senegalese government officials and ministers, as well as the national media.

We are also currently in talks with USAID as well as the Ministery of Education, the Ministery of Environment, and RTS - the national television station - about the distribution of both "Elle Travaille, Elle Vit!" and "Pepinieres du Sahel" ("Tree Nurseries of the Sahel"). Both films are accompanied by packets of supplemental materials for educators to be used in conjunction with the films.

We will keep you informed of any updates and feel free to contact us with questions, concerns, or ideas for future projects.
