SMHAF & Document: No Place For A Rebel

Document are proud to team with Take One Action to present the UK premiere of Ariadne Asimakopoulos and Maartje Wegdam’s No Place For A Rebel (2017) at Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival 2017. Sixteen years after rebels abducted him as a child, Opono Opondo returns home to Uganda as a veteran soldier. Now he has to re-adapt to civil society at large, and also to his family and community. No Place For A Rebel is the quietly moving portrait of a man with scars that are still healing.

Directors Ariadne Asimakopoulos and Maartje Wegdam will be in attendance for a discussion on issues raised by the film, joined by Yasmin Al-Hadithi (Highlight Arts), Mohamed Omar (Mental Health Foundation) and Tawona Sithole (Seeds of Thought Poetry Glasgow).


No Place For A Rebel screens at Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, 3pm on Sunday 15 October. More details can be found here.
