FILM FESTIVAL 2012
In 2012 we opened with the moving award-winning film about economic migrants from Senegal LA PIROGUE
Saturday morning saw hugely oversubscribed children’s workshops in Jamaican dance and mask making – but we managed to squeeze everyone in. It culminated in a huge street procession all round the docks.
Better Mus Come, a new film from Jamaica that explored the roots of violence through a love story opened with a live performance by the glorious Tan Teddy traditional Jamaican choir
The Fade, a documentary about black barbers all over the world, gave away a free haircut to a lucky prizewinner
State of Mind and Weapon of War were two films about healing trauma. A panel of experts held a lively discussion with a very full house.
We closed with the uplifting Kinshasa Symphony.
