Description

Silas
Anjali Nayar, Hawa Essuman / 2017 / 80 min.

Silas Siakor is a tireless activist committed to ending corruption and environmental destruction in Liberia. When the government of Liberia secretly signs away the rights to 1/3 of the country’s land to multinational corporations, Silas and a network of community leaders travel from village to village with cellphone cameras to document the pillaging of the country’s natural resources. The film celebrates the power of communities to fight back against the power of money and politics.

Q&A discussion to follow screening with:
Filmmaker Anjali Nayar
