Capturing Conflict: Cry Freetown

Screening Friday 25th September, 2009


We are screening the Emmy and Bafta winning film Cry Freetown as part of our Capturing Conflict Film Festival which showcases a selection of the most important films about the risks journalists and filmmakers take in order to get their stories out.

A brutal portrayal of what happened in Freetown, capital of Sierra Leone in January 1999.

Sorious Samura shot the film at great risk for 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.
