Erena... Our Eritrea – Part of Journeys Festival International 2020
Biniam and Fathi

30 September — 4 October 2020 Entrance is free

Journeys Festival International presents a short documentary following an Eritrean pirate radio station.

Paris based radio station, ‘Radio Erena’, was set up by former Eri TV journalist Biniam Simon with the aim to broadcast accurate news back to the people of Eritrea. Eritrea, under a current dictatorship, ranks as the worst country in the world in terms of press freedom and Radio Erena, for many Eritreans, is their only access to uncensored information. The premiere screening will be followed by a Q&A with ArtReach’s Film Programmer Reba Martin and filmmakers Aymeric Nicolet and Ellie Hodgetts

30 September — 4 October 2020 Entrance is free
