Meet the people behind “King Leopold’s Ghost,” an award-wining documentary based on Adam Hochschild’s book about the terrors of Belgian colonialism in the Congo.
Producer-director Pippa Scott will attend Sunday’s San Francisco premiere of the film, a benefit for Mother Jones magazine. James Cromwell and Alfre Woodard, who narrate the movie with Don Cheadle, also will appear at a 5:30 p.m. reception before the screening. A moderated discussion follows.
The premiere celebrates the 30th anniversary of Mother Jones magazine, which Hochschild co-founded. Proceeds benefit the Mother Jones Internship Program in Investigative Reporting.
The benefit is at Letterman Digital Arts Center in the Presidio, 1051 Edie Road, San Francisco. Tickets for the full program are $250; $75 for the screening and talk only. For more information, call (877) 448-6656.
