Kanraxel: The Confluence of Agnack

Synopsis
Is multilingual education a privilege or an obstacle? This documentary follows the community of Agnack, a tiny village in the south of Senegal, where it is considered perfectly normal to speak a minimum of six languages. The film was created as part of the AHRC’s Skills Development for language research and teaching in a multilingual world. Accompanying materials include teaching resources for both schools and universities.
