Liberia president-elect George Weah may become the new hero in tackling income inequality and poverty, but the real hope of Africa’s citizens lies in Silas Siakor, who has been fighting against environmental destruction and political corruption for his whole life. A symbol of resistance for a new generation, the tireless crusader has ventured to remote areas to document abuses with his cellphone camera, shedding a critical light on the Nobel Peace Prize laureate President Ellen Sirleaf’s logging exploitation as the root of the country’s decline. Screening with While I Yet Live (15min).
