Amnesty International Africa – Gambia’s Human Rights Agenda for the Next Elected President

Watch the results of another interesting assignment that we recently completed for Amnesty International Africa – filming with a number of awe-inspiring participants, talking about Gambia’s human rights agenda, in 7 key areas. Amnesty’s in-house creative team then put together a great edit of our footage.
