Award-winning documentary screening at Mill Valley Film Festival
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: www.watermeetssky.com
