This film has become a phenomenon. A brutal portrayal of what happened in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone, in January 1999. This Emmy and Bafta award-winning documentary succeeded in making the horror of this country’s civil war a matter of international outrage. The filmmaker, Sorious Samura, shot the film at great risk to his own life, keenly aware of the fact that the strong images he recorded were the only thing that could shake the world from its indifference to the plight of his countrymen, women and children. Produced for Channel 4, UK.
