Gold Plaque for The Ghost People!

TVN's documentary The Ghost People received Gold Plaque award in Documentary: Social/Political category at the 52nd Chicago International Film Festival Television Awards.

The documentary gives insight into dramatic story of Tanzanian 'zeroo zeroo' – the ghost people.Tanzania is the worst place in the world to be born with albinism. WHO (World Health Organization) estimates put the country’s albino population at 300,000. These people are vulnerable to sunburn and skin cancers but the strong African sun is not the only threat they have to face. A widespread belief in the magical properties of the albinos poses a real danger to ‘the ghost people’.
