Also screened on the day was ‘The Prosecutors,’ a documentary by Leslie Thomas which tells the story of dedicated lawyers who fight against rape and impunity, violence against women embarking on the long journey towards justice.


               
           
               
                   

This ‘August Meeting’ is produced by Chioma Onyenwe, directed by Kenneth Uphopho and written by Paul Ugbede.


               
           
               
                   

"August Meeting" is the aftermath of the Aba women’s riot. The women of Oloko, fresh from participating in the protest, have come back home to build on the success of it. This time, the battle is not against the white man but against their husbands and the laws they have created to keep the women under lock and key.
