Ten episodes of this series, which focuses on stigma towards people with addictions, are currently being filmed.
Created on the initiative of the Dakar office of
OSIWA (Open society Initiative for West Africa), the Stigma series aims to educate minds through entertainment (edutainment) and fight stigma towards people with addictions (to drugs, opiates, alcohol, etc.).
It calls on the authorities to provide better care and reintegration of victims of addiction.
In April and May 2018, around ten interviews were organised with several of the
Talents de script and Talents de Femmes contestants, as part of the Writing and producing in Africa 2 project. Two writers were selected: Dialika Sane and Moussa Diallo. Supervised by the instructor Anna Gomis, they created the plots of the series.
With a tight schedule, three writing workshops were then held in Dakar, between May and September, in which ten episodes were created. The filming of those episodes, which is currently under way, was entrusted to the Senegalese directors Lahad Wone (Tundu Wundu, voted best TV series at Fespaco 2017) and Hubert Ndao (Dakar Trottoirs, Sakho & Mangane).
