View all the scheduled films for Take One Action Film Festival 2019 here.
Sunday 22 September, Edinburgh Filmhouse - 8.15 – 10.45pm
‘Survivors ‘– the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone
Panel includes Sally Foster Fulton
The root causes of global inequality – and its impact on individuals as well as communities – are explored with unusual lucidity in films such as Survivors (presented in partnership with Christian Aid), a first-hand account of the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone. In a country forced to prioritise international loan repayments over public infrastructure, the testimonies of the health workers on the frontlines of a terrifying battle make a powerful case for urgent debt cancellation.
Facing the Dragon
Tuesday 24 September, CCA Glasgow - 7.30 – 10pm
‘Facing the Dragon’ – women’s empowerment/leadership in Afghanistan
Panel includes Marianna Leite, Global Lead on Gender and Inequality, Christian Aid
Facing the Dragon (also presented in partnership with Christian Aid) follows two awe-inspiring Afghan women as they attempt to change their country from within, and powerfully encapsulates the energy women all over the world are pouring into addressing power imbalance – both in public representation and in calling democratic institutions to account.
