‘Kick at the Darkness’ is a documentary directed by Amy Brathwaite that explores the traumatic impact of working in development and emergency response programs. Amy conducts interviews with friends and colleagues working in environments experiencing intense suffering, devastation, and conflict – from Darfur to Haiti and more. She hopes to spark conversations among the aid community, to enact change, and to bring about a balance between self-care and care for affected communities.
More can be learned about Amy’s project from her podcast with SoundCloud.
