This Oslo Peace Days event will launch the short-film “Uffo: The wind that blows before the rain” based on a true story, which was featured on BBC Africa.

The film is animated with inspiration from personal interviews and historical photographs.
  • What can we learn from such stories of courage?
  • Can they inspire dialogue across generations?
  • Can they break down one-dimensional stereotyped representations of Norwegian-Somalis?
The event will include a panel discussion and music. Detailed program will be announced soon. 

We will also launch the Uffo comic book in Somali and English at the event!
