Recorded at the 2018 WORD Christchurch Festival, 1 September 2018 We welcome Yaba Badoe, award-winning documentary filmmaker and author of A Jigsaw of Fire and Stars, a powerful, haunting story that steps seamlessly from the horrors of people-trafficking to the magic of African folklore. In 2014 Badoe was nominated for a Distinguished Woman of African Cinema Award, and her documentaries include The Witches of Gambaga, which tells the extraordinary story of a community of women condemned to live as witches in Northern Ghana, and The Art of Ama Ata Aidoo,about the life and work of the iconic African feminist writer. Yaba Badoe appears in conversation with Sionainn Byrnes. Supported by: Edinburgh International Book Festival
