Power of the Voice: Making a Documentary with “Sister Radio”

Monday, Nov 15

6:00 PM–7:00 PM


Join the VPM + ICA Community Media Center for an evening with the creators of the documentary Sister Radio. This virtual event streamed live on the ICA’s YouTube channel will feature conversations with Sister Radio director Andee Arches, Malian radio host Massitan Coulibaly (who the film follows), Andy Edmunds of the Virginia Film Office, Director of Community Media Chioke I’Anson, and the film’s producer Cameron Kit. You’ll also hear music from Amber 7eaven.



Sister Radio is a bi-continental documentary that tells the story of two female independent radio journalists living in sister cities, separated by an ocean, but joined in their mission to cover groundbreaking stories in their hometowns.
