Lost Freetown is a 30-minute documentary film highlighting the environmental challenges facing the Freetown Peninsula.
The film shows how urban migration and displacement caused by the decade long civil war have resulted in a doubling of the population of Freetown, stretching the city resources beyond capacity.
With an unprecedented demand for land, housing, water, fuel and building materials, the environment has undergone wholesale destruction, resulting in dwindling forest reserves; soil erosion and flooding; destruction of traditional water-catchment areas, changes in weather patterns; coastal erosion, and pollution.
