Africa Shafted: Under One Roof (2011)
Directed by Ingrid Martens
Beta SP
55min

Africa’s tallest residential building is in downtown Johannesburg and houses more than 4,000 people. This poignant and humorous documentary offers an honest glimpse of Africa through this building and the people living under its roof—from the tragic reality of xenophobia to the powerful message that, through dialogue and understanding, respect can begin to take root.

Farewell Exile (2011)
Directed by Lamia Alami
Beta SP
15min

Fatima lives in an underprivileged neighborhood in Morocco, anxiously awaiting her immigration papers to join her husband in France. In the year since he left, misery has surrounded her; the lack of any decent job prospects or promising financial future—as well as the harmful environment that her 10-year-old son Mohammed is being exposed to—gives her very little hope. Will her husband come through, in helping her to secure a brighter future for Mohammed, or will she be forced to make the ultimate sacrifice? In Arabic with English subtitles.
