Baka: A Cry from the Rainforest, Phil Agland, 2013, 89 mins

Phil Agland returns to south east Cameroon to rediscover the Baka family he filmed 25 years ago in his BAFTA and RAI winning film Baka: People of the Rainforest. Much has changed but the showing of the original film on a cinema sized screen deep in the forest unexpectedly reconnects the Baka with their past.  The film won the RAI Film Prize at the 14th RAI International Festival of Ethnographic Film 2015.

For further information on the films please contact: RAI Film Officer, Caterina Sartori, film@therai.org.uk

All are welcome, booking not required.
