AfriDocs, Africa’s only free streaming platform for documentary films, is once again bringing some of the best documentaries to TV screens across the continent. With the support of the German Government, AfriDocs will present powerful stories that reflect the difficulties of migration as faced by thousands of people looking for a better life in Europe.
The 2019 edition of Migration Stories is seeing six powerful and moving documentaries about the various realities of migration from an African perspective. All the films will be broadcast on TV3 in Ghana on Monday evenings at 22:30 GMT with three films still remaining and this Monday, January 20th seeing Special Flight being broadcast.
This diversity of films from Kenya, Burkina Faso, The Gambia, Burundi as well as from Europe bring in to stark focus the hardships that drive many Africans to leave their homelands, as well as the stark realities awaiting those who do.
The films are being screened as a way to increase awareness around migration in the communities that are most affected.
