Take One Action Film Festival presents a screening of Survivors, a gripping documentary following three individuals at the epicentre of Sierra Leone's ebola epidemic.


About Survivors

Through the remarkable stories of three individuals at the epicentre of Sierra Leone’s Ebola epidemic, Survivors chronicles the unfolding of one of the most acute public health crises of the modern era. Director Arthur Pratt, a filmmaker and a pastor, inevitably unearths political tensions that still linger from the country’s decade-long civil war, yet what also emerges is a heartfelt tribute to the bravery and humanity of the health workers on the frontlines of a terrifying battle.

Join us in conversation after the film to explore the continuing impact of the Ebola crisis on Sierra Leone, a country that has for decades been forced to prioritise debt repayment over investment in public service infrastructure. We will be joined by guests including representatives from Christian Aid Scotland and Public Health Movement.

Presented in association with Christian Aid.
