The Village Under The Forest, winner of the Audience Award at Encounters South African International Documentary Festival, will screen in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town in September as part of the Tri Continental Human Rights Film Festival's Arab Season selection.
The Bag on My Back premieres on Wednesday, 21 August 2013 at 20:00 GMT on Witness, Al Jazeera's flagship documentary strand. Zimbabwe in the early 1980s was a land of plenty; newly-liberated, with productive farms and an education system the envy of its neighbours.
On Saturday 15 June 2013 in Cape Town, two commissioning editors from Al Jazeera will listen to pitches from 16 African filmmakers. Each person has a maximum of five minutes to pitch their film, with an additional 10 minutes allocated for feedback and questions from the panel.
