Jeff Topham – Liberia 77
Check out our interview with Jeff Topham, documentary filmmaker, about his recent film, Liberia 77.
“Liberia in the 1970s was a childhood paradise for brothers Jeff and Andrew Topham. Endless beaches, thick jungle â€“ even a pet chimp. Their father worked for a Canadian company that made explosives for the Liberian mining industry, and also took thousands of photographs â€“ recording not only his ex-pat familyâ€™s African experience, but also a country and a people on the edge of destruction. A bloody coup dâ€™etat and two brutal civil wars would soon devastate the nation. 30 years later, and now both photographers themselves, Jeff and Andrew return to Liberia to revisit and re-shoot their childhood Eden.”
Liberia 77 will beÂ screening at theÂ Projecting Change Film Festival (PCFF)Â on Friday, April 26 at 9:00 pm.
