"Where the Water Meets the Sky" tells the story of a group of 23 women in rural Zambia who learn how to make a documentary film. With the help of 2 teachers, the women—many of whom are illiterate—make a movie about Penelop, an 18-year-old AIDS orphan, and her struggle to provide for herself and her siblings following their parents’ deaths. Making the film allowed the women to share their lives with the world for the first time, and their project challenged the local traditions that oppressed them and silenced their voices in the past. What began as a workshop about filmmaking became "a journey in empowerment as the women rise to the challenge of pressing their community to change."
All funds raised through the film will support Camfed's work to educate girls and invest in economic and leadership opportunities for young women in Africa.
