Film: Say My Name

1 min read

Filmed in four countries, Say My Name, tells the stories of people on the outside of society facing extreme discrimination. Name-calling, bureaucratic loopholes and racial exclusion prevent Baniris, Valentina and Phineas and thousands of others from studying, working or healthcare. Desperate for change they become actors presenting their reality to a stunned audience.

Crossing visually diverse landscapes, we see theatre performed in the streets of Botswana, Kenya, Rwanda and the Dominican Republic. The challenge is not only to change the minds of the general public and state authorities, but also consider their own beliefs within the group. As difficulties surface they must overcome their prejudices and accept each other.

 

This is a Minority Rights Group production, funded by the European Union. The contents of the film is the sole responsibility of Minority Rights Group and can under no circumstances be regarded as reflecting the position of the European Union.
