AFRICAN MOOT screens at Globe Cinema April 5

Over a hundred of the brightest law students from across Africa converge for one intense week of debate, bonding and high emotion.

Every year, young aspiring lawyers compete at the prestigious African Human Rights Moot Competition. Over one week, these future leaders act as both prosecution and defence on a fictional human rights case, each fighting to bring the trophy back home.

Seedat delivers insight into urgent political questions facing Africa while capturing the commitment of African youth to shaping their continent's future.

Single Ticket: $14, includes tax, plus fees
