Behind the Scenes

Eight short films about the Ebola virus and its impact, from eight different perspectives. In this behind-the-scenes documentary, the participants of Sierra Leone on the Mend talk about the media workshop, their experiences during the shoot, and why the films that came out of this project are still particularly important for the country even now that the epidemic is over.

»Many people think that after Ebola the country will be back in its normal shape. It‘s a lie. Watch these movies! You will see that Sierra Leone right now needs help more than ever.«
