This Is Dee

"Out of the huts of history's shame, I rise. Up from a past that's rooted in pain, I rise. I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide. Welling and swelling, I bear in the tide. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear. I rise. Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear. I rise. Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave. I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise. I rise. I rise.

On February 18th, the British council will kick off  ‘Opin Yu Yi’ (Open Your Eyes), a 5-day Human Rights Film Festival in Freetown, Sierra Leone. The festival which will coincide with World Social Justice Day and is joint effort between Reuters Videographer Idris Kpange, and Advocaid‘s Executive Director, Sabrina Mahtini.

The documentaries shown will highlight prisoner rights, the death penalty, women’s issues, corruption, and the environment. After “Opin Yu Yi” is launched the festival will move to two additional locations in the City, including the slum community of Kroo Bay and Globe Cinema. These two locations were selected to make the films more accessible to the masses. The first screening at the British Council will target secondary school and college students.
