DOCUMENTARY: System Failure
Wednesday 20th January 2021
FORGET ALBERTO FOR NOW, dir Beina Xu
How many people are forced to be collateral damage in a system where the odds are against them?
In a world built on questionable foundations of bureaucracy, people are failed daily by the laws and institutions supposedly there to order our world in fair and equitable ways.
Looking to a world of perpetual crises, from migrants at the Turkish border to the police’s mistreatment of detainees with mental health issues closer to home, these non-fiction works articulate a failed system, and those who suffer for it. Programmed by Miranda Mungai. 71'
This programme contains descriptions of mental breakdowns and physical abuse by police. Please note, the film A Horse Has More Blood Than A Human can only be accessed by UK audiences at the request of the filmmaker.
