The Event

African Premiere of TIGERS 

TIGERS is a a Danis Tanovic film based on the true story of former Nestle Pakistan salesman who takes on the baby milk industry with the help of a public watchdog and advocacy group, IBFAN.

From Oscar-winning director, Danis Tanovic (NOMAN’S LAND) and Andy Paterson (GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING, THE RAILWAY MAN) comes a true story, 12 years in the making. A Pakistani salesman, employed by Nestle, one of the world’s largest corporations, learns that his promotion of baby formula to doctors is causing babies to die. He risks everything to make it stop, taking on the industry with the help of UK-based Baby Milk Action.

TIGERS has global relevance, and is of special interest to all those concerned about uncontrolled corporate power and malpractice, its impact on health and the struggle to get the truth out to the public. There will be 2 screenings of TIGERS:
