|Plot||Interviewing over one hundred people in an often very hostile environment is already a momentous battle but when the film has been completed, convincing the media that the documentary has been historical and not political was another horrendous battle. Many TV networks rejected the film just because it was either "too political" in parts and was in black and white and it was longer than 60 minutes; the standard format being 30 to 60 minutes and in color. The main protagonists in the documentary have also been confused about the choice of black and white and about some of the director's other projects and this has perhaps been the last winning task to perform. Life is never black or white -or what it seems- especially in this part of the world. Besides when there is only one white person (the director) amongst 100 people interviewed including the crew, the film was artistically defined from the onset.... search for Burning from the Inside on IMDb|

|This feature documentary is an interview with several members of a Nigerian tribe called Ijaw, of which several million are living in the oil-rich region of the Niger Delta. Nigeria is the world's sixth largest exporter of crude oil, holds the fourth largest reserve of oil and gas and is an important supplier of oil to the US. Since the British left Nigeria in the 1960s the country has been in a state of semi-civil war, wracked by religious conflicts, and its natural resources looted by western companies, as a result of which millions of people have died. The people interviewed in this film have all suffered horrendous violence in their struggle for independence. Some have been on death row, some raped, some kidnapped and even tortured. Off camera they are quite willing to talk but on camera they were too scared because of possible repercussions. Their story still transpires throughout these portraits. The project started in January 2000 and by September 2004, during which time the media had changed their general mood be describing the situation of 'gangs, local tribes and the oil companies in conflict' as 'armed militants and guerrillas against the government in a war zone'. The documentary deals with all aspects of human rights from child abuse, women, the status of gays and lesbians, the environmental problems and the struggle for a common identity.|
