“Ich komme aus Sierra Leone, aus dem Osten aus der Stadt Koidu in dem Bezirk Kono. Ich bin auch Teil des Teams, das den Film “Aminata” ausgesucht hat. Ich habe einen Trailer produziert, um zu zeigen, wie wir in Sierra Leone Filme schauen. Ich wählte den Film “Aminata”, um die traurige Situation junger Mädchen in Afrika zu schildern. Der Film ist einer der beliebtesten Filme in Sierra Leone. Kino Asyl hilft mir bei der Integration in die deutsche Gemeinschaft. Es hilft mir, in Kontakt mit anderen Leuten aus anderen Ländern Afrikas zu kommen. Ich freue mich auch, andere Asylsuchende zu treffen und es ist nett, meinem eigenen Film mit den in Deutschland lebenden Menschen zu teilen und die Möglichkeit zu haben, miteinander zu interagieren. Teil von Kino Asyl zu sein, hilft mir dabei.”

“I am from eastern Sierra Leone, from the city called Kuido in the area called Kono. I am part of the team showing the movie called “Aminata”. I did the trailer video to share my experience of how we watch movies in my country Sierra Leone. I choose the movie “AMINATA” to share the reality of the sad situation of young girls in Africa. It became the most popular movie in Sierra Leone. I choose to be part of Kino Asyl because of the following reasons; being part of Kino Asyl can help me integrate with the German community. It helps me come in contact with different people from other countries. I am also glad to meet other asylum seekers like me and I think it´s nice to share my own movie with the people living in Germany and have the opportunity to interact with one another. Being part of Kino Asyl is helping me to socialise.”

Dieser Film aus Sierra Leone thematisiert das Problem der frühen Heirat von Aminata, der einzigen Tochter armer Eltern. Sie ist begierig, in die Schule zu gehen und eine westliche Ausbildung zu machen, jedoch ist in ihrem Dorf nur die islamische Ausbildung für Mädchen erlaubt. Mit 14 Jahren wird sie gezwungen, den König ihres Landes zu heiraten. Sie wird vergewaltigt und gequält, aber verfolgt weiterhin ihren Plan einer besseren Zukunft.

This is a film from Sierra Leone that highlights the problems many girls face with early marriage. Aminata was the only daughter of her poor parents but even at her young age she was eager to go to school and get western education. Unfortunately her village could only allow girls to have Islamic education or none at all. The king of her homeland was a polygamous monarch who stops at nothing to get a woman he wants to make his wife. At age 14 Aminata was forced to marry this king beyond her wish. On her refusal, she was raped and tortured by the wicked king who forced his will on her. Even through her ordeals, Aminata never forgot her vision. She planned a way of escape from her life of bondage and ran away to the city where she sought refuge, attended school and landed her dream career.
