In the context of London Design Festival 2009, AA school grad students presented a pop-up installation with a portable, self sufficient cinema. This giant glow-worm structure was originally designed for an Ethiopian town, Lalibela. In December 2008, the Lalibela Cinema Design Collective (LCDC) organized a 5-night “Lalibela Touring Film Festival”. The Ethiopian community was presented with David Attenborough’s documentary of the oceans, the Blue Planet. The LCDC is now seeking funding for a permanent cinema in Lalibela, along with other long-term aid projects.
