Screening of Camfed's 'Where the Water Meets the Sky'
Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman, and written by Jordan Roberts (March of the Penguins), Where the Water Meets the Sky, tells the inspiring story of 23 women from a remote region of northern Zambia who are trained in filmmaking. 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, a young woman 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.
The film will be shown on Wednesday, 4 March, at 1:00 at UNICEF House, Danny Kaye Visitors Center, 3 UN Plaza (44th St. between 1st and 2nd Ave.), New York, NY 10017 and will be followed by a Q & A with Camfed Executive Director Ann Cotton.
Camfed, the Commonwealth Secretariat and UNICEF all sit on the Global Advisory Committee of UNGEI.
