‘I just need my freedom’

This moving documentary by IRIN follows the work of Marvel and Victoria, two paralegals working for Namati’s partner AdvocAid in Sierra Leone.

It illustrates the harsh reality of life for many women in Sierra Leone who come into contact with the police and the prison system. Marvel and Victoria bring hope to those suffering arbitrary detention, violence and shake-downs by the authorities.

This film gets to the heart of what paralegals are able to achieve in places with broken legal systems.
