An animation story of Ugandan scholar
Sr. Dr. Dominica Dipio's work
in orality, literature and film

“For us, Africans who are predominantly described as very oral people, the film medium is a very powerful continuation, in a way, of our orality. I am no longer that scholar who writes a fine paper and has it published in a journal.” (Video by Osmosis Films)


Moreover, Sr. Dipio, who did her doctoral studies at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, was appointed as one of four consultors of the Vatican-based Pontifical Council for Culture in 2019.
