Peter Brock, a good friend of Globalhood, just sent us a letter:
I am pleased to announce that my new film on poverty, development and western assistance, entitled They Come In The Name of Helping, is now available to view at www.BaiBureh.org. This film attempts to highlight the need for respect and humility on the part of the West by exploring the issues of poverty and development from the perspective of the poor themselves. Through the voices of young, educated Sierra Leoneans, this film offers valuable insights into how we can participate in the development process without reenforcing the dehumanizing legacy of colonialism. To view the film or read a more complete description, visit www.BaiBureh.org. Since the film is meant to provoke debate and critical thought about issues that affect billions of people worldwide, please share it with as many people as possible.
Wonderful! Shortlisted for the first annual Globalhood film awards.
