Sierra Leone: Insanity of War

Channel 4

Unreported World

Go to About Section

This week's Unreported World comes from Sierra Leone, where ten years after one of the most brutal conflicts in recent history, up to half-a-million people have been left severely mentally traumatized.

Reporter Seyi Rhodes and Director George Waldrum find a population that has endured rape, torture and public executions – and is served by just one psychiatrist.

"Reporter Seyi Rhodes finds a population that has witnessed rape, torture and public executions… The world may have moved on, but here the scars of civil war still run deep."
- The Herald

"This is a deeply affecting film, and not one that is easy to watch… a reminder of how rare real reporting on television has become, finding a story that is being ignored and confronting the viewer with the harsh truth."
- The Observer
