Another Film Crew Detained in Nigeria


A few months back we blogged extensively about the holding of local filmmaker Sandi Cioffi and her crew. Well this morning the New York Times has a new story about another filmmaker  who was temporarily held while filming his own documentary. Andrew Berends, whose previous film BLOOD OF MY BROTHER which followed the story of an Iraqi portrait photographer, who was shot and killed by an American patrol, was released after 36 hours of questioning, but apparently might be brought back in for further investigation. Our thoughts are with Andrew and his family.
