AfriDocs celebrates the human spirit this June


This June, AfriDocs, the only documentary broadcast stream across sub-Saharan Africa, celebrates the human spirit. This month AfriDocs screens a diverse array of triumphant human stories including For Kibera, the story of the life of a Kenyan slum-dweller turned to radio personality, journalist and self-made cameraman: Boy Dallas of Kibera; Ladies Turn, the story of women football players in Senegal fighting against all odds simply to arrange a women s football tournament; and Plus Mother at Fifteen, the story of Mariam who became a mother at the age of 15 and like so many other underage mothers in Malawi, is forced to drop out of school and yet discovers filmmaking and uses it to engage with her community, peers and mother.

AfriDocs screens every Thursday at 19h55 (CAT) on [ED] (DStv channel 190 and GOtv channel 65) across sub-Saharan Africa, with repeats on Fridays and Sundays. For all film and scheduling information, visit the Afridocs website.
