The thematic focus of Dilman’s movie project concerns the abandonment of traditional knowledge systems in fighting diseases, such as malaria in East Africa, in favor of foreign developed gene-driven technology. A special focus of the film will be a critical consideration of the dire implications in implementing such technologies. The film will recreate life in a village after experiments conducted by Target Malaria, a research consortium that wants to release GMO mosquitoes in Uganda, among other countries, and the possible consequences of such an intervention. Dilman worked to develop a preliminary script and 3D models for the film to be produced with CGI technology.
