We Get Shot With Silent Bullets

The global climate crisis is rooted in a socio-economic political system driven and sustained by resource extraction. The unseen costs of this system are felt most urgently and destructively by those living in the resource-rich Global South and in particular by working class and indigenous women.

Join us for a weekend of documentaries looking at capitalist extractivism and environmental resistance across the African continent, with a focus on the vital labour and activism of women. These screenings will be accompanied by reflections from filmmakers featured in the programme, as well as activists working on the ground.

All events in this programme are free with an optional donation. Proceeds will go to WoMin, an African ecofeminist regional alliance that fights for climate justice and to advance women-centred, community-driven development alternatives.

Schedule*:

Friday 20 August: Strike a Rock + Extended Intro

Saturday 21 August: Amussu + Interview

Sunday 22 August: These Hands + Women Hold Up The Sky + Live Discussion

*Each film will be available to watch for 48 hours.
