WHRIN, in Partnership with Aya Distribution and Under the Same Sun,
 Warmly Invite you to UK Première of....

In recent years People with Albinism (PWA) have become a commodity across many parts of Africa – human targets of a lucrative and sinister trade. Witch doctors offer thousands of dollars for their body parts which are believed to bring good fortune, prosperity and the ability to cure any illness. As a result, Tanzanian PWA, including children, have been murdered by gangs of men who hack off arms, legs or genitals.

White Shadow, set in Tanzania and directed by Noaz Deshe, tells the story behind the headlines of the persecution of PWA in Tanzania, through a captivating narrative this fictional piece takes us inside the life of a young PWA, The film has won numerous awards at festivals across the world including Venice Critics Week and Seattle International Film Festival. It has been highly acclaimed by film directors such as Francis Ford Coppola who describes the film as ‘Timeless, haunting, horrific, beautiful’. 

WHRIN member, Under the Same Sun, has been leading the fight to put a stop to this practice and has recorded significant success recently with the UN Human Rights Council adopting a special resolution to prevent attacks on PWA and announcing an historic International Albinism Awareness day (13th June).
