Now included with the film is an educational commentary track—a conversation between director Clare Major and Alan (also an RPCV and filmmaker).
Feast & Sacrifice was one of nine national finalists in the 2011 Student Academy Awards documentary competition.

I’m proud to announce that Feast & Sacrifice won first place in the documentary category at the 2011 College Television Awards! It was a fun weekend down in L.A., with a lot of great filmmakers—and Jane Lynch gave a speech, so what else could a person ask for? Thanks to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation. (Just don’t call it a Student Emmy!)
Feast & Sacrifice is now streaming on LinkTV’s ViewChange.org site: watch it here!
The site—whose tagline is “Using the power of video to tell stories about real people and progress in global development”—has a diverse collection of videos arranged by topic and geographic region.
Feast & Sacrifice will be shown as part of the fourth annual Africa World Documentary Film Festival, hosted by the University of Missouri St. Louis Center for International Studies. It screens in Yaounde, Cameroon, on Thursday, April 21.
A short excerpt of Feast & Sacrifice screened as part of the Berkeley J-school’s Africa Reporting Project panel at the African Studies Association’s 2010 Annual Meeting in San Francisco. During the panel, instructors and students discussed the challenges of reporting on Africa and presented original reporting from the class.
