Socially Minded Documentaries

  1. In 2010, WikiLeaks and its sources used the power of the Internet to usher in what was for some a new era of transparency, and for others the beginnings of a new information war. The documentary film explores how this enormous trove of classified U.S. data was leaked and the impact the documents have had on international events. Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney ("Taxi to the Dark Side") digs into the untold story, showing how one small group of digital activists managed to change the future of free expression.

  4. Shida is the new kid in class in a private boarding school in Tanzania. He is shy, he has no self-esteem, he does not speak one word of English – the primary language in the school, and he suffers from albinism. Like most children with albinism in the country Shida was taken away from his parents to be protected from the witchcraft related killings.

    The film follows Shida during his first year at the new school where the rules are strict and tolerance low. He is trying his best to meet the demands. The school is a chance of an education and to escape a life on the bottom of society. With the help from his new friend Allan he is struggling to become better in school and to be accepted by the teachers and pupils.

(The background photograph is of Kibera, the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Homes in Kibera are shacks of corrugated metal, with no plumbing or electricity. 20,000 children in Kibera can't afford to attend public school, due to the cost of books and uniforms. HIV/AIDS devastates the community.)
