"The study examines the empowering effects of film and video among participants of various nonformal adult education programmes in Zimbabwe. In the course of a project in the field of legal education, audiovisual educational material for the Zimbabwean feature film Neria has been developed and distributed to the grassroots. Further, it has been utilised in a nation-wide multimedia educational awareness campaign. By using mainly qualitative data gathering methods, the study succeeds in measuring participants' attitude change. It analyses the findings with respect to empowerment and provides recommendations for changes in the legal system as well as in the use of video in development co-operation."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
