Blind raises myriad questions surrounding treatment of people with albinism in Africa
by Sarah Deshaies
Hannah (Lydia Zadel) is a white woman from Quebec, an official observer on her first trip to Africa in order to evaluate an NGO that is hiding and nurturing children with albinism in Tanzania.
The children need protection, because to be born with the condition in certain parts of Africa is to be sentenced to certain persecution, and even an early and likely gruesome death.
