Below is the much awaited programme for the first Human Rights Film Festival in Sierra Leone, starting this Saturday at British Council from 10 am. We apologise for the delay in sending out the programme but we were overwhelmed by the fantastic last minute submissions and have tried hard to incorporate as many as we can. What we lack in time, we have gained in quality!
We have a full packed festival of short and feature films including a cultural dance performance and inspiring Sierra Leonean and International films such as War Don Don, Waking the Dead, Sisters in Law, Fambul Tok, When China Met Africa, Pray the Devil Back to Hell and Trouser Trouble. We also have a special Journalists for Human Rights screening on Monday 20 February 2012 to mark World Social Justice Day.
At our closing ceremony on Wednesday 22 February 2012 at Globe Cinema we will have a small prize giving to acknowledge some of the contributions made by Sierra Leonean film makers to make films highlighting important human rights issues.
We’ll be showing the inspiring film – Pray the Devil Back to Hell – which chronicles the remarkable story of the courageous Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country. A story of sacrifice, unity and transcendence, Pray the Devil Back to Hell honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia. Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating, it is a compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.
