Where the Water Meets the Sky (David Eberts, 2008) will be screened on Wednesday 3rd February 2010 in the Studio Theatre. The film is suitable for age 14 and above.
Narrated by Morgan Freeman, Where the Water Meets the Sky was produced by Camfed (the Campaign for Female Education) an organisation dedicated to fighting poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa by educating girls and investing in economic and leadership opportunities for young women. The film tells the inspiring story of 23 women from rural Zambia who are trained in filmmaking. This uplifting documentary follows the courageous group as they produce a film about an issue that no one will discuss: the plight of young women orphaned by AIDS.
Presented in celebration of Diversity Week at Edge Hill University.
