SING, FREETOWN is a documentary that follows two Sierra Leonean men on their journey to try to reclaim the narrative of their nation. It’s a very powerful and heart-warming film and we are passionate about helping it reach as wide an audience as possible.

Film synopsis: **Emmy winning filmmaker from Sierra Leone, Sorious Samura, has grown tired of telling negative stories about Africa. He embarks on a journey with his best friend, Sierra Leone’s most famous playwright, Charlie Haffner, to create an epic work of national theatre – a play to reclaim their country from negative media narratives and the damaging legacy of colonial rule. It doesn’t go as planned…

The film has its world premiere at Sheffield DocFest on Friday 11 June and there will be a Q&A with the directors Clive Patterson and Sorious Samura afterwards.

The film will also screen at Picturehouse Cinemas from June 25.

We’re excited to be sharing a positive story about Africa and hope you can help to spread the word about the film premiere and the subsequent cinema release.
