Reel Life Screens White And Black: Crimes Of Color

White and Black: Crimes of Color is a 58-minute documentary about albinism, an age-old African taboo. In the East African region ten times more people have albinism than in North America and Europe. In Tanzania and parts of East Africa, corrupt healers traffic in the body parts of Persons with Albinism (PWA). They sell them for magical potions and amulets to anyone who will dare to use them by preying upon deep-seated and long-standing prejudices and superstitions about PWA. Vicky Netema, former BBC Tanzania Bureau Chief investigates the murders of PWA sweeping the country. She takes us into the lives of those terrorized by this discrimination and we experience through their own eyes their fear and their courage.

Bouqui’s Place Entertainment Presents: D’Attic
D’Attic is an open mic show where people express their talent and art in a calm and relaxing atmosphere with the aim of keeping the event a purely Christian music affair. It has been discovered there are fewer opportunities for Christian artistes to express themselves and we want to provide platforms such as this. D’Attic is with the tagline, CLEAN. CLEAN is an acronym for Creative-Lyrical-Earnest-Altering-Norms. Bouqui says that participating artistes are expected to be creative, have strong lyrics, must be earnest in their expression and be ready to alter acceptable norms.
