With the recent spate of horrific attacks on people with albinism in Tanzania, the UK Premiere of a new film, White Shadow, is very timely.
From the film’s publicity material:
White Shadow, set in Tanzania and directed by Noaz Deshe, tells the story behind the headlines of the persecution of PWA in Tanzania, through a captivating narrative this fictional piece takes us inside the life of a young PWA, The film has won numerous awards at festivals across the world including Venice Critics Week and Seattle International Film Festival. It has been highly acclaimed by film directors such as Francis Ford Coppola who describes the film as ‘Timeless, haunting, horrific, beautiful’.
I have seen the film already, and will post my review here in a few days time. But for the moment, let me just say that I entirely agree with Coppola.

- Date: Friday 20th March
- Time: 7.30pm (Reception with the director and lead actor, and human rights activists, followed by the film screening)
