On Saturday, March 30th at 1:30pm, join Reel Causes at the Vancouver South African Film Festival. We are a community partner of the Becoming Visible and Someone to Blame – The Ahmed Timol Inquest screening.
Becoming Visible, a fascinating fusion of documentary and video art, tells of the impact on local marine life by seismic exploration off the coast of KwaZulu-Natal.
Someone to Blame – The Ahmed Timol Inquest weaves a compelling narrative that draws on the 2017 re-opening of the inquiry into the brutal murder of Ahmed Timol, who in 1971 died at the hands of the security police at the John Vorster Police Station in downtown Johannesburg, a death described by the police at the time as a suicide.
VSAFF runs from March 29th to 31st.
Reel Causes partners with filmmakers and Canadian causes dedicated to addressing global social justice issues. We host film screenings followed by a Q&A session to educate and inspire our community, and provide a forum for authentic conversation around the issues that affect us locally.
