Kamara presents documentary film

Leaving home is never an easy thing to do, but Desmond Kamara, a recent University of Lethbridge graduate (BA'10), did just that when he travelled from Freetown, Sierra Leone to Calgary, then the University of Lethbridge.

Recently, Desmond, or Dez as he prefers to be called, returned to Sierra Leone to help make a documentary film, The Kids of St. Michael's, that he believes will show the world what has been happening to the child soldiers of Sierra Leone and just how much work has been left unfinished.

Kamara, an anthropology major, will be on hand Saturday, June 12 beginning at 1:30 p.m. at the Lethbridge Public Library Theatre Gallery to show the film and talk about the process of filmmaking under difficult circumstances.

He will put a very real perspective to the personal stories of the people he and a crew from Montreal-based Macumba International gathered. The event is free to attend.
