12:30pm - Film Screening: 'Mama Rwanda' (2016) by Laura Waters Hinson

Mothers who mean business.

MAMA RWANDA is a modern tale of working mothers told through the eyes of the unlikeliest women – those who lived through genocide. Drocella, a village wife, and Christine, a city widow, have traded subsistence living for a life of business innovation, sparking enlightenment and controversy among their communities.  Set against the backdrop of national reconciliation, Drocella and Christine represent a new generation of women helping to turn post-genocide Rwanda into one of the top ten fastest growing economies in the world. Interspersed by commentary from Rwandan experts in women’s entrepreneurship, the film highlights the roles of education and access to capital in empowering women to overcome poverty through entrepreneurship. A universal, globally relevant tale, MAMA RWANDA is a deeply cinematic portrait of two mothers on a journey to build peace through prosperity creation.

14:00 - BHS Premiere of 'Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle' (2017)
by Paul Sng

In 2017 housing rose to the top of the British political agenda for the first time in a generation. But despite the media spotlight, few stories examined the catastrophic long-term failures that resulted in a chronic shortage of social housing in the United Kingdom.

Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle explores the agenda behind the neglect, demolition and regeneration of council estates in the U.K. over the past thirty years. The film reveals how individuals and communities are fighting against the state and private developers, as they try to save their homes from demolition, while investigating the decisions that turned a crisis into a tragedy.

Dispossession is the story of people who know that housing is not an expensive luxury, but a fundamental human right.


16:00 Presentation ‘How to Win the Money Game’ by Daryl Harper

Money and Finance is a subject that many people are either never taught in school, they don't understand or, more often than not, they shy away from. This lack of knowledge and financial illiteracy has left many people struggling to get out of the rat race- the monotony of just surviving and living from pay cheque to pay cheque. This is your opportunity to learn some simple steps that can impact and change your life dramatically. 

18:00 - UK Premiere of "Black Friday 2 “The Living Legacy World Tour” (2017) 
by Ric Matthis

This Film offers 7 practical principles to build a financial and ethical living legacy. A two part strategy to create your own living legacy.

Featuring David Banner, Les Brown, Jewel Tankard, Judge Lauren Lake, Dr. Boyce Watkins, and more


19:30 – North London Premiere of ‘Captain Thomas Sankara' (2012)
by Christophe Cupelin


Commemoration of the thirtieth anniversary of the assassination of Burkina Faso President Thomas Sankara 

A portrait composed from the archives of Thomas Sankara, president of Burkina Faso between 1983 and his murder in 1987. Ready to liberate his country and transform the mentality of his fellow citizens, contesting the world’s political order and challenging the powers of his time, Sankara stands out strongly in the history of both Africa and the world, remaining known as the African Che Guevara. Blending together rare and meticulously assembled archives, director Christophe Cupelin offers a panoramic vision of the intellectual and political heritage of this atypical head of state. Giving his documentary the energy of a punk manifesto, between idealism and irony, he faithfully restitutes the originality of a president as striking in his actions as in his words.
