Award-winning documentary screening at Mill Valley Film Festival

Event Date: 
October 12, 2008 - 14:45 - 16:30

The Campaign for Female Education's award-winning documentary, Where the Water Meets the Sky, will premiere in the Bay Area on October 12th, at the Mill Valley Film Festival.

Where the Water Meets the Sky, narrated by Morgan Freeman and written by Jordan Roberts (March of the Penguins) tells the inspiring story of 23 women from a remote region of northern Zambia who are trained in filmmaking. Many of the women cannot read or write, and most have had little exposure to media or technology. And yet, in one of the poorest areas of the country, where women rarely have a chance to speak out, this courageous group produces a film about an issue that no one will discuss: the plight of young women orphaned by AIDS. Inspired by the strength of Penelop, an AIDS orphan who agrees to share her story on camera, the group becomes a force for change, showing how a single story can unite an entire community.

After the screening, there will be a Q&A with directors David Eberts and Helen Cotton. For more information:

The movie sounds wonderful. I'm glad people were brave enough to start a conversation about AIDS in in remote parts of Zambia. In America, we take for granted that we are allowed to teach AIDS prevention and discuss care.

I see there will be a few other screenings of Where the Water Meets the Sky. I hope there will be one in Portland.

Thanks for sharing!

In friendship,

thanks, jenna!

Hi Jenna,

Thanks so much for your kind and encouraging words. We might very well try to arrange a screening in Portland; stay tuned!

In the meanwhile, though, if you're at all interested, we are reaching out to supporters asking them to host screenings at their house. Here's how it works: we send you the DVD and a host-a-screening kit, which includes background materials on the film, tips on how to make your screening successful, discussion points, etc. If you'd like, we could certainly send you one--but no pressure or obligation, just thought I'd offer.
