Kelvin Jalibah is a student filmmaker at The Accountability Film School in Liberia and I got to know about him through an instagram post that was shared with me in a tweet from Blair Glencorse. Blair is the founder of Accountability Lab, which has been working in Liberia to empower ordinary Liberians and civil society organizations to “build sustainable tools for new and innovative approaches to bolster accountability.”
Kelvin’s short film gives voice to frontline Ebola workers who narrate their stories about some of the unfair situations they faced as they put their lives on the line to combat the spread of Ebola in Liberia. And, as Liberia celebrates the end of the Ebola scourge in the country, Kelvin’s film is extremely germane because it pointa our attention to those unsung heroes who risks their lives to turn the tide.
Meet Kelvin Jalibah, one of the students at the accountability film school in #Liberia. His biggest hope is to create films “that will have a great impact on people’s lives.” He said “I used to think that violence was the only way, but I changed my mind.” Watch his five-minute #documentary on the injustices against individuals who worked in the #Ebola treatment centers here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfzCSOk8YwQ
