The Africa Centre is pleased to open the Screening Africa documentary series with Africa's Last Taboo. The series will showcase thought-provoking and inspiring documentary films from around the continent of Africa.

In Africa’s Last Taboo, award-winning filmmaker and journalist, Sorious Samura, investigates what it is like to be a gay person in Africa, discovering shocking levels of prejudice and hate, driven by governments, religious organisations and communities. Samura looks at the impact extreme homophobia is having on gay people's lives, tracking down the victims of a mob attack in Kenya, speaking to gay men who have spent time in prison for their sexuality and meeting African homosexuals who are often forced into secret lives. Samura unearths the forces driving homophobia in Africa, finding Muslims and Christians working closely together to target homosexuals and visiting American pastors helping to spread anti-gay sentiment.

There will be a Q&A after the film with the film's Associate Producer Clive Patterson. Clive Patterson was a key member of the team behind Africa’s Last Taboo, carrying out the bulk of the research and filming some of the material. In this sense, you will be able to ask him questions on the situation he encountered first-hand on the ground.

Tickets: £5 at the door (no need to RSVP)
Doors open at 3:45pm for food and mingling, film starts at 4:45pm. Please arrive early to secure a seat.

FOOD & BAR: Home-made Nigerian food will be available on sale for £5 per plate and our reasonably priced bar will be open before and after the screening.
