We’re pleased to be hosting an all-day film zone at the Summat, in partnership with Leeds International Film Festival, including…
Two short films on people trafficking, presented by Leeds Anti Sex Trafficking Network (LAST) and Unchosen, and followed by a panel discussion with the film directors: ’Demand Supply 2012′, exploring the underside of the 2012 London Olympics; and ‘Echoes’, on the unexpected moral dilemma facing a sex trafficker.
They’ll also be ‘Revolution Uploaded‘, telling the story of how social media like Twitter helped shape and determine the outcome of the Arab Spring uprisings; followed by talk with director Ahmed Zaki.
‘Heave’, chronicling the true story of how and why the Yorkshire On-Land Boating Club pushed a boat around the roads of Yorkshire, gathering stories everywhere they went; in association with Pointed Arrow Theatre Co, and featuring a Q+A with project mastermind Dan Brown.
We’ll be showing some of the latest, hot-off-the-press short films from our latest ‘In One City’ project, through which 12 Leeds people each explored belief, faith and motivation on camera, in partnership with Lippy Films and T4P. Further info at: www.t4p.org.uk/ioc.
‘Imshuradj: People without a Country’, recounting the plight of the marginalised, repressed and dispossessed Tuareg people of north Africa; also look out for performance from locally-based Tuareg musicians in the Summat music zone.
