FAMBUL TOK 9PM April 15
9PM
FAMBUL TOK
Sara Terry  (Sierra Leone / USA, 2011) 82 minutes.  Krio and English, with English subtitles.  Genre: documentary

Fambul Tok tells the story of healing in post-conflict Sierra Leone through the intimate stories of perpetrators and victims, including:

Esther and Joseph  family members who were caught in the horrors of the war. At age 12 Esther was captured by rebels, and raped by 15 men. Among them was her uncle, Joseph. He, too, had been caught by the rebels and ordered to rape Esther  or be killed.
Sahr and Nyumah  best friends whose lives were forever changed by the conflict. Rebel forces turned the two boys on each other, forcing Nyumah to beat his best friend so severely that he crippled him  and then forcing him to cut the throat of his best friend's father.
The villagers of Foendor and Tamba Joe, the native son who killed and beheaded 17 members of his own clan.

Victims and perpetrators of Sierra Leone's brutal civil war come together for the first time in an unprecedented program of tradition-based truth-telling and forgiveness ceremonies. Through reviving their ancient practice of fambul tok (family talk), Sierra Leoneans are building sustainable peace at the grass-roots level  succeeding where the international community's post-conflict efforts failed. Filled with lessons for the West, this film explores the depths of a culture that believes that true justice lies in redemption and healing for individuals  and that forgiveness is the surest path to restoring dignity and building strong communities.

Sunday, April 15 at 9:00 p.m.  $8 general, $5 Youth and Senior Citizens.
