‘African Lens: The Story Of Priya Ramrakha’, a 55-minute film by Shravan Vidyarthi, will be screened at Zanzibar International Film Festival this Monday July 14th in Stone Town, Zanzibar.
Remembered by his peers as one of Africa’s ‘first international photojournalists’, Priya produced remarkable work during his travels in the continent. In 1968, at the age of 33, Priya was killed in crossfire while covering the civil war in Biafra for Life Magazine.
‘African Lens’ brings Priya’s unpublished work to light allowing us to celebrate his life, and enjoy the images he was driven to re-create.
