2003. 50 Minutes. Somalia. Directed by Judy Jackson. Documentary

Documents the operation of the independent, non-partisan radio and television station, HornAfrik, in the Somali capitol of Mogadishu.

HornAfrik is sometimes attacked by warlords angered by the show's content and the station requires armed guards 24 hours a day.
