Documentary Afternoon

Join us at the Rio Cinema for an afternoon of mid-length documentaries from London filmmakers, with a truly international reach. EEFF alumni The Rainbow Collective introduce us to two boys who make their living on a railway platform in Bangladesh; Lainey Richardson explores the ravaging effects of drug addiction on the townships of South Africa; Eelyn Lee follows four performers getting ready to participate in the spectacular Paralymic Games Opening Night Ceremony Santiago Posada travels with an ex-alcoholic across Sri Lanka towards an uncertain reconciliation with his family; and Eva Weber’s Black Out shows students in Guinea going to extraordinary lengths to better themselves. This is British filmmaking at its most outward looking and illuminating.
