A surgical health officer in Ethiopia, a rural midwife in Cambodia, and a traditional birth attendant in Haiti work tirelessly to save the lives of women and babies. If there is a war on women, these health workers are the shock troops in their defense. Their stories reveal strategies in place to improve maternal health and the crisis of maternal and newborn mortality, shedding light on when the strategies work, when they don't work and how the lack of transport, communication and education create weak links along the way. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eSister is a film directed, produced, shot and edited by women. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/77447195\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eMontreal World Film Festival 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eTake One Action Film Festival, Edinburgh 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eReykjavik Film Festival, 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAfrican Diaspora Film Festival, 2013\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCambodia International Film Festival, 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOne World Human Rights Film Festival, 2013\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eDoxa Film Festival, 2013\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eInternational Film Festival of Documentary Films on Human Rights : Bir Duino Kyrgyzstan, 2013\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Childbirth in Third World nations comes under scrutiny in this sovereign, intermittently harrowing documentary from director Brenda Davis that follows three healthcare working in Ethiopia, Haiti, and Cambodia,where the rates of childbirth-related deaths are alarmingly high.

In Cambodia, Pum Mach—a soft-spoken supervising midwife for 22 years—meets with several patients, including a 19-year-old with malaria who will need a cesarian section, but lacks the funds for surgery (Pum Mach comes up with a solution, but the delivery presents additional complications).

Ndomo's life has been scarred by exploitation and mistreatment at the hands of those who would ride on the coattails of his talent. Trafficked to France as a teenager with promises to him and his family of riches beyond their imaginations, he was promptly abandoned in the streets of Paris. Despite this, Ndomo's story is one of inspiration as, fighting against all the odds, he manages to find a light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel.

Ndomo's life has been scarred by exploitation and mistreatment at the hands of those who would ride on the coattails of his talent. Trafficked to France as a teenager with promises to him and his family of riches beyond their imaginations, he was promptly abandoned in the streets of Paris. Despite this, Ndomo's story is one of inspiration as, fighting against all the odds, he manages to find a light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel. Kermit has risen from humble beginnings to a great height, signing a professional contract at 18 with Feyenoord in the Dutch league. His example is one of success brought about through the stable domestic system that exists in the World Cup host country. The story that unfolds around these two young men reveals the struggle that is life in much of Africa and demonstrates how football is a vital lifeline to which many will desperately cling.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/12133732?badge=0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\/12133732\" style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eSoka Afrika - Trailer 1\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\/user3903453\" style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eMasnomis\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eWinner of Best Film\u003c\/b\u003e (Golden Whistle), K\u0026amp;S Film Festival New York (2011)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eWinner Best Picture\u003c\/b\u003e, Palermo International Sports Film Festival (2011)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eShortlisted Best Documentary\u003c\/b\u003e, One World Media (2012)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e(Nominated for Best Foreign Film, Best Editing, and Best Sound Mix at Palermo International Sports Film Festival)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e  \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\"Soka Afrika beautifully captures the harsh reality that can turn colourful dreams into dark nightmares\" \u003cb\u003e- \u003cb\u003eESPN \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e“Football trafficking is a serious issue which not many people are aware of.

When her parents retire and move back to Tanzania, Kimaro begins a project that examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. Though Kimaro grew up spending every other summer in Tanzania, it isn't until she is older and in an interracial relationship of her own that she finally grasps the importance of understanding her family's cultural heritage. She and her partner set out to make a documentary about her father's struggle to fit back in with the family and Chagga culture he left behind forty years earlier. But in the process, Kimaro struggles with her own relationship to Tanzania, and learns more about the heritage that she took for granted as a child. As she talks to more family members, she uncovers a cycle of violence that resonates with her work and life in the U.S., inspiring Kimaro to dig deeper and reveal the hidden truths of her own story. And in so doing, she finds her own way to translate her father’s Chagga culture into her own personal legacy. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan

I particularly liked the way in which A Lot Like You personalizes the emergent tension between cultural relativist or postcolonial sensibilities on the one hand and the notion of universal human rights on the other. This is one of the defining questions of our time: how do we embrace\/embody the values of the various declarations on human rights without re-engaging in modernist or colonial projects? It’s a fraught problem for a time of global cultural diffusion and awareness.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e         - Aron Hsiao, Managing Editor International Journal of Politics, Culture, and Society\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eA LOT LIKE YOU is \"...rooted in consciousness...

When her parents retire and move back to Tanzania, Kimaro begins a project that examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. Though Kimaro grew up spending every other summer in Tanzania, it isn't until she is older and in an interracial relationship of her own that she finally grasps the importance of understanding her family's cultural heritage. She and her partner set out to make a documentary about her father's struggle to fit back in with the family and Chagga culture he left behind forty years earlier. But in the process, Kimaro struggles with her own relationship to Tanzania, and learns more about the heritage that she took for granted as a child. As she talks to more family members, she uncovers a cycle of violence that resonates with her work and life in the U.S., inspiring Kimaro to dig deeper and reveal the hidden truths of her own story. And in so doing, she finds her own way to translate her father’s Chagga culture into her own personal legacy. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan

I would highly recommend screening the full 80 minute feature as its pacing, editing, dialogue, and music allow for a full understanding of the rich array of concepts presented by this wonderful director.
