The last MCTC-sponsored opening was for "Frontieres" (Borders - www.siff.net/festival/borders), the story of a harrowing journey of several women across west Africa.

Ms. Traoré is from Burkina Faso, a west African country of 18 million people. In 2015, at least 7 million cases of malaria occurred there. The work of the Seattle MCTC strives to reduce the burden of malaria in Burkina Faso and throughout the world. For more information on the Seattle MCTC, go to Seattle Malaria Clinical Trials Center.
