  • Bush, Boobs & Body Positivity with The Slumflower

    Chidera Eggerue preaches her messages of self-love and body positivity to thousands on her blog, The Slumflower, and with hugely successful campaigns like #saggyboobsmatter. Her 2018 debut book, What a Time to be Alone, quickly became a top 10 best-seller and her second book, Scribble Yourself Feminist – a collaboration with illustrator Manjit Thapp – is an interactive and empowering journal addressing #everydaysexism. We welcome Chidera to Doc/Fest for the first time, to discuss her campaigning work and new documentary Bring Back the Bush (wt) for Channel 4, which questions our increasingly homogenised ideals of beauty.

  • Paul Greengrass in Conversation

    We welcome the hugely respected director Paul Greengrass to this years’ Sheffield Doc/Fest. Having cut his teeth on the investigative documentary strand World in Action, known for its forceful and unorthodox journalistic approach, Paul Greengrass has become one of the world’s most popular filmmakers. His films, which often explore real-world anxieties and confront both social and political issues, include 22 July, three of the Jason Bourne franchise, Captain Phillips, United 93 and Bloody Sunday.

    In conversation with journalist, broadcaster and BFI Senior curator Danny Leigh, Paul will discuss his journey from TV documentaries in the UK to feature films in Hollywood, the evolution of his signature vérité-style, and his thoughts on the need to open up the film industry to less privileged and working class talent and ensure future creative diversity.
