In Tanzania, witch doctors are spreading a belief that the body parts of albino people will bring wealth and good fortune. Filmed over six years ’In The Shadow Of The Sun’ tells the story of two albino men as they attempt to follow their dreams in the face of prejudice and fear. Against the backdrop of an escalation in brutal murders of people with albinism, quietly determined 15-year-old Vedastus still dreams of completing his education. Josephat Torner has dedicated his life to campaigning against the discrimination of his people and decides to leave home and travel to confront the communities who may be hiding the murderers.

Conventional in form but rock-solid in terms of content, In the Shadow of the Sun is a fine example of how documentaries can cast international light on local heroes, those rare and inspirational figures of which civil-rights legends are haphazardly made.
The Hollywood Reporter
In the Shadow of the Sun is heartrending and emotionally devastating; the stories depicted in this highly engaging and effective documentary will shock, alarm you and bring you to tears. Highly recommended
Go watch the movie, then ponder the message
