Vice Films in Liberia
by Vice Films


Vice Films travels to West Africa to rummage through the messy remains of a country ravaged by 14 years of civil war. Despite the United Nation’s eventual intervention, most of Liberia’s young people continue to live in abject poverty surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. Child soldiers who were forced into cannibalistic warfare are now orphaned without direction and the warlords are now in supposed community leadership roles. Militias are also still laying low but are waiting for the right opportunity to make an attempt on their corrupt government.

Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street

$5 donations are accepted
