Philippe Diaz, an award-winning producer/director (“Mauvais Sang” “Pierre et Djemila”), has built a reputation as a provocative filmmaker with a cinephile’s heart. His shocking documentary, “The Empire In Africa,” is fast-becoming an international festival favorite and will screen in Los Angeles during the Artivists Film Festival on Friday, November 10 at 6:00pm.
“The Empire in Africa,” recently won the award for Best Documentary at the Hollywood Film Festival as well as the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2006 Slamdance Film Festival. Filmed during the last month of the civil war, which lasted eleven years and resulted in an estimated 60,000 deaths and the displacement of more that 2 million people, the doc boldly criticizes the role of western powers in the exploitation of African countries, as typified in Sierra Leone. The shocking imagery includes footage of an execution by peacekeeping forces, which was smuggled to the director by a former cameraman from a local news station in FreeTown. This film has been invited to more than 25 festivals around the world including the Cannes Film Festival (Critics Week), Edinburgh, Leeds, and Milan. It won the “Grand Prize” at the Montreal’s African Film Festival and the “Award for the Most Powerful Film” at the One World Film Festival, Prague Czechoslovakia.
