Document International Film Festival, Scotland's leading human rights festival, is going on the road this summer. Going into its twelfth year this October, highlight's of last year's festival will be screened in New Galloway, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness from May to July.
The first screening will take place at New Galloway's premiere arts and cultural centre: The Cat Strand. We are proud to be showing Julia Dahr's Wind of Change. Dahr's film ventures to Eastern Africa, which has just experienced the worst drought the region has seen in over 60 years. This documentary attempts to give the drought a human face through the story of one Kenyan farmer with big dreams and a vision for his family’s future as he fights against the effects of both global and locally induced climate change. Dahr deftly combines images of a beautiful but harsh landscape with the farmer’s own video diary to provide an intimate portrait of his struggle.
The screening takes place Saturday 10th of May at 3pm, tickets are free but you'll need to register online here first
