Coming Up:

OCTOBER 25, 2017: SAABA
Conversation after the film with filmmakers and participants from Burkina Faso

U.S. INSTITUTE OF PEACE
2301 Constitution Ave, NW
Washington, DC

The recent killing of four U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers in Niger as well as an August attack that claimed the lives of 18 people in Burkina Faso highlight the extremist violence and other security threats facing communities in the Sahel region of Africa. On October 25, join the United States Institute of Peace and AFI DOCS for the world premiere of SAABA, a six-part documentary series that traces the personal stories of residents and police on the region's frontlines, from the award-winning filmmakers at Meridian Hill Pictures (CITY OF TREES) and Big Mouth Productions (CAMERAPERSON). SAABA chronicles a USIP initiative to build trust and reduce tensions among citizens, police, local authorities and informal security groups outside Ouagadougou, the capital of the West African country of Burkina Faso.
