NEW Screening: Premiere – How to Make a Difference in Africa FULLY BOOKED

Screening Monday 16th June, 2008

African journalist and film maker Sorious Samura has spent his life in search of answers to the many problems of Africa. His approach has sometimes been controversial and his methods extreme, but his reputation for the unflinching pursuit of truth regardless of its inconvenience has earned him respect across Africa and throughout the world.

How effective are foreign based charities in Africa? Is there an alternative to the top-down approach which has dominated the aid industry for decades? Earlier this year Sorious Samura and Storyhouse Films spent a month searching for answers by looking at the operations of an organisation called AfriKids in Ghana.

The result is a documentary film that impacts not only on the local area, but on Africa as a whole.

Length: 40 mins
