The films of documentarian and activist Iara Lee have dealt with a wide range of topics ranging from the West Saharan independence movement to Pakistani mountaineers and the artists of Burkina Faso. In 2010, Lee also participated in the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, which was forcefully stopped by Israeli soldiers. 

Maailman Kuvalehti editor-in-chief Juha Mäkinen interviews Lee about her work and experiences around the world. The language of the interview is English. 

Two of Iara Lee’s films are screened at the festival: "Burkinabé Bounty" (2018) and the brand new "Wantoks: Dance of Resilience in Melanesia" (2019).
