    IDFA '08 | "Rough Aunties" Take IDFA

    Among iW's favorite docs at this year's International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), which ended last week was Kim Longinotto's "Rough Aunties" (disclosure though: we were only there five days so obviously we didn't see everything). The film is a heartwarming account of a Durban, South Africa organization and its loving & courageous workers who fight child abuse and - pretty much all social ills. Their motto is to "never stop crying for the children." Longinotto was previously in IDFA with "Sisters-in-Law" and returned to the continent for her latest doc. Pictured left to right following the second screening of their film in Amsterdam: Mildred Ngcobo, Kim Longinotto (director), Jackie Branfield Thuli Sibiya, Eureka Oliver, Sdudla Maphumulo, Paul Taylor (producer), Debra Zimmerman (Women Make Movies), Ollie Huddlestone (editor of the film).
