Country of production Canada

Liberian activist Silas Siakor is a tireless crusader against illegal logging and corruption. Through this focus on one small country -- “Silas” warns of the power of politics, features the role of technology in our rapidly-changing world and highlights the impact one person can make to change the system from the ground up.

One man's battle gains momentum and emboldens communities to raise their fists and smartphones, seize control of their lands and protect their environment. At times almost funny and at times tough, but feisty throughout, "Silas" depicts a new generation of resistance.

In the 2019 RAI Film Fest
