Sylvia Pankhurst, Everything is Possible
This feature length documentary is now available on DVD and is packed with little-known facts, rare archive imagery, expert interviews and exclusive testimony from Sylvia's son, Richard Pankhurst and his wife Rita. Included with the DVD is a booklet which summarises the context in which the movement for female suffrage emerged and key moments in Sylvia's life. The campaigns Sylvia led embraced far more than "votes for women" as she uniquely understood the fight for democratic rights required a challenge to the system.

Pricking the Missionary Position series
The Pricking the Missionary Position series puts our peers' aspirations on the map and challenges the poverty of ambition the West has for the developing world. Shot in Ghana, the series questions the work of NGOs in the developing world, reveals the draconian strings attached to so-called "debt relief", showcases ambitious Ghanaians who are making development happen, challenges celebrities who speak on behalf of Africans, and reveals the truth behind subsistence living.
Visit the individual films' websites below for more details.
Is poverty caused by thieving politicians, third world gangsters and a global crimewave? No, but our obsession with corruption in Africa is endemic. So say Brendon and Yolanda, two young South Africans who are sick of the finger pointing. This powerful documentary suggests it is time to ditch the corruptababble.
Running time: 42:21. Visit the website for more details.
Damned by Debt Relief
Damned by Debt Relief challenges the Live8-G8 debt relief jamboree. Eloquent and angry Ghanaians cut through the spin and explain; debt relief provided no new money and draconian conditions applied. Damned by donor diktat, Ghanaians are not impressed by the West's supposed largesse.
Running time: 28:00. Visit the website for more details.
A letter to Geldof
Bob Geldof visited Ghana for the TV series Geldof in Africa and in the accompanying book, describing his crowning as the Chief of Development in a town called Ajumako-Bisease. This documentary follows in Geldof's footsteps one year on, and finds a town still waiting to hear from him. A timely reflection on the meaning of promises, the role of celebrity, and the true impact of "awareness campaigns" that leave those we are meant to better understand with nothing but shattered dreams.
Running time: 26:49. Visit the website for more details.
Shot in Ghana by a volunteer crew, Think BIG showcases Ghanaians with big aspirations and big plans. Flash hotels, fab homes and full-on modernity are where it's at; dependence makes Ghanaians sick. The film turns the usual pity fest on its head and showcases Ghanaians who are making it. The film shows that some development is happening and that Africa is not one great morass of extreme poverty.
Running time: 28:40. Visit the website for more details.
Keeping Africa Small
From small-scale projects to HIV/AIDS programmes, NGOs are everywhere in the developing world. However well meaning they may be, their programmes epitomise low horizons and often get up the noses of everyone. Godbless, Wofa, De Roy and local fishermen and women loathe the peanuts offered and sanctimonious lessons in good behaviour. They want jobs and material advancement, and for NGOs and aid agencies to stop treating them like children.
Running time: 26:00. Visit the website for more details.
I'm a subsistence farmer... get me out of here!
As Westerners celebrate nature and the so-called simple life, many in the developing world yearn for the comforts of urban modernity. Shot in Ghana, the film is packed with hard-hitting truths which may disturb Western romantic notions of rural life. We learn that many would rather live in an urban shanty town than stay stuck in subsistence life in rural areas, which means mud huts and mind-numbing toil.
