BlackOut

Every day during exam season, as the sun sets over Conakry, Guinea, hundreds of schoolchildren begin a nightly pilgrimage to the airport, petrol stations and wealthy parts of the city, searching for light to study by. This evocative documentary tells the story of these children's struggle for education in the face of the country's own fight for change.
