Award-winning documentary, Awaiting Trial screens at Effective Altruism Nigeria workshop.

Awaiting Trial is a documentary that explores both the #EndSARS protests and the ‘deeper illness’ they point to – the phenomenon in Nigeria’s communal justice system called ‘awaiting trial’ where people are arrested and detained indefinitely without charge.  After a successful 5-day digital screening on YouTube, the documentary recently held a private screening at the Effective Altruism event in Nigeria.

Effective altruism (EA) is a philosophy and social movement about combining empathy, reason and evidence.

On November 19, 2022, Effective Altruism Nigeria held a nationwide workshop where Awaiting Trial was screened.

The screening was held at Hampton Apartment, Maitama, Abuja, and was attended by people from every geopolitical zone in Nigeria.
