Raw Social, September 1st: Film screening & talk of Kieran Hanson’s ‘Shooting Freetown’

July 27, 2012

On Saturday the 1st of September, we will be joined by filmmaker Kieran Hanson to be shown a screening of the short documentary film ‘Shooting Freetown’. This event comprises We Face Forward Toward the City Part II, a follow-up to our after hours event on August the 18th.

A decade since Sierra Leone’s devastating civil war, from the ashes rises a new dawn of creativity in audio-visual media. Inspired by Jean Rouch’s ‘shared anthropology’ and ‘ethno-fiction’, Shooting Freetown follows three people forging their way in film and music in the nation’s capital, facing the constant struggles with vision and resourcefulness. By incorporating collaborative video projects, their stories give a fresh image of post-war Freetown – presented to the world through their own lens.

This film was chosen as the winner of the Manchester Film Festival’s Best Student Short Documentary.
Come and watch this insightful film with us about these determined young filmmakers in Sierra Leone, and join us for a discussion about it with the filmmaker himself.
