Al Jazeera’s Liberia: Living With Ebola was named Best Documentary at the inaugural Mohamed Amin Media Awards (MAMA) in Nairobi, Kenya last week.

Launched by Africa24 Media and Mo Sound, MAMA honours “the best quality, most innovative content and rising platforms that are changing the face of Africa.”

 In Liberia: Living with Ebola, Sierra Leone’s Emmy, BAFTA and Peabody winner Sorious Samura teamed up with Liberian investigative journalist Mae Azango, a winner of International Press Freedom Awards from both The Committee to Protect Journalists and Canadian Journalists for Free Expression.

 Working together at extraordinary personal risk, the pair explored the harsh reality of living through the world’s deadliest Ebola epidemic.

 The documentary was produced and directed by Clive Patterson of Insight TWI.

 Liberia: Living With Ebola premiered in November on Al Jazeera’s award-winning Africa Investigates series, which empowers Africa’s best journalists to pursue high-level investigative targets across the continent.
