Rwandan Clementine Dusabejambo winner of the Zanzibar International Film Festival 2016 Golden Dhow for Best Short Film for “A Place for Myself”.

Synopsis: A Place for Myself (2016), 21 min.

At a casual elementary school comes a five year old albino girl, Elikia. Due to her skin color her classmates make her realize that her being ‘different’ is more a problem than a special trait. While the neighborhood treats her as a stereotype, her mother encourages her. Together, they fight back and raise
their voice to find a place for themselves.
