'Jew-Man Business' in Sierra Leone

Within the inner city of Freetown, Sierra Leone lies an area known as ‘Belgium’. Hundreds of youth, many of them ex-combatants, are hustling in this area on a daily basis. Jew-Man Business, a documentary made by anthropologists Maya Mynster Christensen, Mats Utas and Christian Vium, portrays three young men in their daily lives, doing ‘Jew-man business’ in ‘Belgium’: Bone Thug lives on the street, Junior tries to leave the street life behind, Ice T is a former rebel soldier.

A fragment of Jew-Man Business is available on the documentary’s website.
