Rough Aunties + Q&A with Kim Longinotto

Documentary filmmaking can be an inherently self-indulgent process. However Kim Longinotto nobly refrains from authorial intrusion when telling this extraordinary story, with immensely powerful results.

With Rough Aunties, in which an astonishing team of women fight against the exploitation of children in Durban, Longinotto aims to inspire discovery and identification rather than pity. She discusses her views of documentary making and the life-changing decisions it can entail at this special Sheffield Doc/Fest event.
