Still from "Zinder". In a dirt courtyard contained by a tall concrete wall, two men sit assertively atop a motorcycle held high above the ground by another man. Surrounding them are people standing and sitting in plastic chairs, watching the scene. Visible beyond the wall is a tree and the top of a low building.

Film Synopsis: Zinder

Director: Aicha Macky | Countries of production: France, Germany, Niger | Year: 2021 | Length: 82 min
Language: Hausa with English subtitles | Age: 15+ years

Nigerien filmmaker and activist Aicha Macky, born in Zinder, returns to her hometown to tell the story of neglected youth, masculinity and the legacies of white supremacy.

In her hometown of Zinder, Niger’s second-largest city, director Aïcha Macky films the streets of Kara Kara. Within a country whose resources are plundered by foreign firms, this infamous district is ruled by poverty and violent gangs, and everyone dreams of a way out – be it terrorism or emigration. Macky turns her unflinching gaze on disillusioned young men caught in this vicious cycle of hopelessness and radicalisation and those who, against the odds, try to build a future for themselves and their families.

Content notes: Accounts of violent assault, testimonies of transphobia and references to gender-based and sexual violence (incl. rape and forced prostitution); images of a violent execution can be glimpsed.

Booking Information

To make our events more accessible, we operate a sliding scale ticket policy (thanks to SQIFF for leading the way) across all our venues and online. Choose what to pay based on your personal circumstances, from £0-10. All we ask is that you are honest with us so that we can continue offering this flexibility to those who need it most. When you pay a higher price for a ticket, you help subsidise a ticket for somebody on a lower income.


Graphic with turquoise background with the white Take One Action logo in the top left corner. White text top-right reads 'Sliding Scale Ticketing' and white text underneath reads 'How much should I pay?; £0-2: I find it difficult to meet everyday costs; £4-6: I can meet everyday costs but sometimes find it stressful to do so; £6-8: I can meet everyday costs; £10: I can comfortably meet my everyday costs and have savings too'
