Coumba and her little sister Debo are the first to leave their family’s remote African village, where meals are prepared over open fires and water is drawn from wells, to attend school in the bustling city. But when an accident suddenly threatens their family’s survival, their father decides to sell 11-year-old Debo into an arranged marriage. Torn between loyalty to her elders and her dreams for the future, Coumba hatches a secret plan to rescue her young sister from a fate she did not choose.

Coumba and her little sister Debo are the first to leave their family’s remote African village, where meals are prepared over open fires and water is drawn from wells, to attend school in the bustling city. But when an accident suddenly threatens their family’s survival, their father decides to sell 11-year-old Debo into an arranged marriage. Torn between loyalty to her elders and her dreams for the future, Coumba hatches a secret plan to rescue her young sister from a fate she did not choose.

Now there’s a generation of women leading the way. They’re strong, they’re inspiring, and they’re radically changing people’s lives. From the busy streets of Manhattan to the dusty slums of Kenya, YOGAWOMAN uncovers a global phenomenon that has changed the face of yoga forever. In record numbers women are discovering their own strength, vitality, peace and power through yoga. Claiming this ancient spiritual path from its traditionally male form, the result is a radical transformation of yoga into an international multi-billion dollar industry. Led by a new generation of dynamic female teachers, this “new” yoga replaces the male-centered, more rigid style with a distinctly feminine practice that honors intuition, family, strength, flow, connection, community, activism and the cyclical nature of women’s lives. A multi-award winning documentary narrated by Annette Bening, YOGAWOMAN is a groundbreaking film that captures this fascinating time of awakening female power through rich personal stories.\u003cspan\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"\/\/www.youtube.com\/embed\/QlYfO1R83A8\" height=\"225\" width=\"400\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e  \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAwards:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best Feature Documentary- Off Shoot Film Festival, USA 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best International Documentary Director - New York International Film and Video Festival 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Audience Choice Award- Awaken International Spiritual Film Festival 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best Feature Documentary- Women’s Independent Film Festival, USA 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best Director- Women’s Independent Film Festival, USA 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best Editing- Women’s Independent Film Festival, USA 2012\u003cbr\u003e \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eReviews\/ Testimonials:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n”Critics Choice: Top 5 Other Films“ – Sept 2011, Time Out London\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e “4\/5 Stars- Yogawoman is both an affirmation and an inspiration.

Now there’s a generation of women leading the way. They’re strong, they’re inspiring, and they’re radically changing people’s lives. From the busy streets of Manhattan to the dusty slums of Kenya, YOGAWOMAN uncovers a global phenomenon that has changed the face of yoga forever. In record numbers women are discovering their own strength, vitality, peace and power through yoga. Claiming this ancient spiritual path from its traditionally male form, the result is a radical transformation of yoga into an international multi-billion dollar industry. Led by a new generation of dynamic female teachers, this “new” yoga replaces the male-centered, more rigid style with a distinctly feminine practice that honors intuition, family, strength, flow, connection, community, activism and the cyclical nature of women’s lives. A multi-award winning documentary narrated by Annette Bening, YOGAWOMAN is a groundbreaking film that captures this fascinating time of awakening female power through rich personal stories.\u003cspan\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"\/\/www.youtube.com\/embed\/QlYfO1R83A8\" height=\"225\" width=\"400\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e  \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAwards:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best Feature Documentary- Off Shoot Film Festival, USA 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best International Documentary Director - New York International Film and Video Festival 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Audience Choice Award- Awaken International Spiritual Film Festival 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best Feature Documentary- Women’s Independent Film Festival, USA 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best Director- Women’s Independent Film Festival, USA 2012\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWINNER Best Editing- Women’s Independent Film Festival, USA 2012\u003cbr\u003e \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eReviews\/ Testimonials:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n”Critics Choice: Top 5 Other Films“ – Sept 2011, Time Out London\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e “4\/5 Stars- Yogawoman is both an affirmation and an inspiration.

In North America, the way a Muslim woman dresses is her personal choice, but that choice, which includes whether or not to wear hijab to cover her hair, is often met with both approval and criticism. The film Between Allah \u0026amp; Me (and Everyone Else) explores the challenges of Farida, Shaila, Naima, and Sarah, four Torontonian Muslim women making decisions about their personal dress codes. When these women decide to start or stop wearing hijab, they cannot foresee the range of reactions other people will have to their choices. The film follows the women’s personal journeys and their interactions with different members of society, and in doing so reveals that the piece of fabric called hijab carries many diverse meanings and messages. As these women try to follow their faith and their hearts at the same time, the film unveils the intricate and complex effects of hijab on Muslim women, their families and communities, and the larger multicultural society in which they live.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/173013808?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/Laurelstogether_medium.png?15456611009104511590\" alt=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eReviews \/ Quotes:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“[Kyoko] truly crafted a documentary… We saw fascinating character arcs and felt quite close to your characters…  film that should travel to festivals and beyond.” \u003ci\u003e– \u003c\/i\u003eMarc Glassman, Film critic, publisher and professor, Ryerson University, MFA in Documentary Media program\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “Between Allah and Me not only deals with a timely topic, but one that has great personal relevance to me.

Farida, who is of Turkish decent, grew up in Russia at a time when the state discouraged religious expression, so she’s been trying to make up for lost time. She studies the Qur’an and prays five times a day, although her mother doesn’t see the point of the hijab. Farida also trades in her short-sleeved tops and above-the-knee skirts for more modest apparel. When she attended Islamic school as child, Shaila felt like a sinner until her mother bought her a hijab. After wearing it for 20 years, she has now entered politics, and decides that it doesn’t feel right anymore, so she only wears the hijab for special occasions. As she puts it, “I feel that Allah can read my heart, and that's what Islam is to me”. At the beginning of the film, Naima, a student, believes that wearing the Hijab is the right thing to do — although she isn’t sure the it’s mandatory, since religious scholars disagree on the point —but she comes to the same conclusion as Shaila, and stops wearing it. Since she wore the hijab for four years, those when know her express surprise, but she assures them that her beliefs haven’t changed. Her friend, Sarah, has her mother’s support for wearing the hijab, but her secular father criticizes the practice, calling it a relic from an earlier era. By allowing her subjects to speak for themselves, Yokoma offers viewers who are interested in religion and gender studies much food for thought in this documentary that is sure to provoke discussion.

In North America, the way a Muslim woman dresses is her personal choice, but that choice, which includes whether or not to wear hijab to cover her hair, is often met with both approval and criticism. The film Between Allah \u0026amp; Me (and Everyone Else) explores the challenges of Farida, Shaila, Naima, and Sarah, four Torontonian Muslim women making decisions about their personal dress codes. When these women decide to start or stop wearing hijab, they cannot foresee the range of reactions other people will have to their choices. The film follows the women’s personal journeys and their interactions with different members of society, and in doing so reveals that the piece of fabric called hijab carries many diverse meanings and messages. As these women try to follow their faith and their hearts at the same time, the film unveils the intricate and complex effects of hijab on Muslim women, their families and communities, and the larger multicultural society in which they live.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/173013808?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/Laurelstogether_medium.png?15456611009104511590\" alt=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eReviews \/ Quotes:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“[Kyoko] truly crafted a documentary… We saw fascinating character arcs and felt quite close to your characters…  film that should travel to festivals and beyond.” \u003ci\u003e– \u003c\/i\u003eMarc Glassman, Film critic, publisher and professor, Ryerson University, MFA in Documentary Media program\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “Between Allah and Me not only deals with a timely topic, but one that has great personal relevance to me.

Farida, who is of Turkish decent, grew up in Russia at a time when the state discouraged religious expression, so she’s been trying to make up for lost time. She studies the Qur’an and prays five times a day, although her mother doesn’t see the point of the hijab. Farida also trades in her short-sleeved tops and above-the-knee skirts for more modest apparel. When she attended Islamic school as child, Shaila felt like a sinner until her mother bought her a hijab. After wearing it for 20 years, she has now entered politics, and decides that it doesn’t feel right anymore, so she only wears the hijab for special occasions. As she puts it, “I feel that Allah can read my heart, and that's what Islam is to me”. At the beginning of the film, Naima, a student, believes that wearing the Hijab is the right thing to do — although she isn’t sure the it’s mandatory, since religious scholars disagree on the point —but she comes to the same conclusion as Shaila, and stops wearing it. Since she wore the hijab for four years, those when know her express surprise, but she assures them that her beliefs haven’t changed. Her friend, Sarah, has her mother’s support for wearing the hijab, but her secular father criticizes the practice, calling it a relic from an earlier era. By allowing her subjects to speak for themselves, Yokoma offers viewers who are interested in religion and gender studies much food for thought in this documentary that is sure to provoke discussion.

The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”. Girls who survive infancy are often subject to neglect, and many grow up to face extreme violence and even death at the hands of their own husbands or other family members. The war against girls is rooted in centuries-old tradition and sustained by deeply ingrained cultural dynamics which, in combination with government policies, accelerate the elimination of girls. Focusing on India and China, IT’S A GIRL tells the stories of abandoned and trafficked girls, of women who suffer extreme dowry-related violence, of brave mothers fighting to save their daughters’ lives, and of other mothers who would kill for a son. Global experts and grassroots activists put the stories in context and advocate different paths towards change, while collectively lamenting the lack of any truly effective action against this injustice.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/51164553\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eFor a copy of the official \u003cspan class=\"GRcorrect\"\u003ediscussion\u003c\/span\u003e guide for \u003ci\u003eIt’s a Girl\u003c\/i\u003e, social action materials to share in \u003cspan class=\"GRcorrect\"\u003eyour\u003c\/span\u003e classroom, or further support from the filmmakers, please contact \u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003einfo\u003c\/a\u003e\u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e@\u003c\/a\u003e\u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eitsagirlmovie\u003c\/a\u003e\u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e.\u003c\/a\u003e\u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003ecom\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e","published_at":"2012-09-12T20:22:00-07:00","created_at":"2012-09-12T17:53:20-07:00","vendor":"Andrew Brown","type":"DVD ","tags":[],"price":9995,"price_min":9995,"price_max":29500,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":239951085,"title":"University and College (With PPR)","option1":"University and College (With PPR)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"IAG-U","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"It's A Girl (educational) - University and College (With PPR)","public_title":"University and College (With PPR)","options":["University and College (With PPR)"],"price":29500,"weight":100,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":26,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"continue","barcode":""},{"id":239953745,"title":"K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","option1":"K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"IAG-C","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"It's A Girl (educational) - K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","public_title":"K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","options":["K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)"],"price":9995,"weight":100,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":0,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":null}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_a_Girl_web_1024x1024_07b42c49-d252-47db-838c-08d00dc6dbd5.png?v=1495671399","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_A_Girl_filmstill3.jpg?v=1495671399","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_A_Girl_filmstill5.jpg?v=1495671399","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_A_Girl_filmstill6.jpg?v=1495671399"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_a_Girl_web_1024x1024_07b42c49-d252-47db-838c-08d00dc6dbd5.png?v=1495671399","options":["License Type"],"content":"\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eDirected by: Evan Grae Davis\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eProduced by: Andrew Brown \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eReleased: 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eRunning Time: 63 min (Full length version) \u0026amp; 52 min (Classroom length version)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eSubtitles: English, Spanish, French, Chinese,  \u003cimg alt=\"\" src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/220px-Closed_captioning_symbol.svg_icon.png?684\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls.

In Haiti, Davis shadows the gregarious Madam Bwa—a traditional birth attendant—on her rounds through twisting, poverty-stricken streets. Despite the lack of formal medical training, Madam Bwa has helped to deliver 12,000 babies over the course of 32 years. 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). Other medical dilemmas encountered involve an impacted placenta, a stillborn fetus, and a gangrenous uterus (doctors successfully remove the damaged portion of the organ). As Ethiopian OB\/GYN resident Goitom Berhane laments, most of these problems are preventable, but a lack of education and reliable transportation transforms minor issues into major ones. Fortunately, Ehtiopia also has health extension workers, such as Hirity Belay—a tracksuit-sporting high school graduate with a year of training—who travels to remote villages on foot to assist pregnant women with nutrition, hygiene, and other concerns. Without the kind of dedicated professionals who appear in Davis's documentary, the situation would be worse, but she makes it clear that the women of developing nations need far more care than they've been receiving. Viewers should be forewarned that SISTER is fairly graphic, with frequent nudity and some squirm-inducing surgical procedures.

More than anything, she wants to make her family proud of her. So, fueled by the opportunity for a better education and enticed by MTV-inspired visions of America, Mai travels to the United States for her senior year of high school. Nothing in her wildest imagination prepares Mai for her crash landing in rural Mississippi, where her relationships with white Pentecostal and black Baptist host-families, self-proclaimed red-necks, transvestites, and South Vietnamese immigrants challenge her long-held ideas about America, herself, freedom, and even about Vietnam.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/145559307?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/145559307\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eMai's America (Trailer)\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/collectiveeyefilms\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCollective Eye Films\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eDistinguished Documentary Achievement Feature Documentary, IDA\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAudience Award for Feature Documentary, SXSW\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eGolden Gate Certificate of Merit, San Francisco International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Northampton Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Magnolia Independent Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Indie Memphis\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest of Festival, Wine Country Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Insightful and bittersweet, the film provides an unexpected picture of America through the eyes of a charming candid heroine.”\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e — Tini Tran, Associated Press\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Astonishing.

Every year in this part of Ghana, hundreds of women endure communal and domestic violence as a result of traditional religious beliefs that demonize women. It’s also assumed that it is in women’s nature to harm others. These beliefs, combined with decades of poor health and educational standards, mean women inhabit a world where it is believed that nothing – not even illness or death – happens by chance. For over a century, women from all over the northern region have found refuge in a camp in the town of Gambaga, where they live under the protection of the chief, Gambarrana, the custodian of one of four places of sanctuary for women condemned of witchcraft. Made over the course of 5 years, this disturbing expose is the product of a collaboration between members of the 100-strong community of \"witches\" and women’s movement activists determined to end abusive practices and improve women’s lives in Africa. Painful experience and insight come together to create an intimate portrait of the lives of women ostracized by their communities. Told largely by the women themselves, their incredible stories and struggles are conveyed to a wide range of audiences by the director’s narration.\u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36865915\" height=\"400\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\n\u003cp style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/collectiveeyeblog.tumblr.com\/post\/40789800752\/interview-with-yara-badoe\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCLICK HERE\u003c\/a\u003e to read Collective Eye's interview with Director \u0026amp; Producer Yara Badoe\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Festival Documentary 2010 – Black International Film Festival UK\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e2nd Price – Documentaries, FESPACO 2011\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “An excellent exploration of how women are victimized… a valuable resource for understanding how to end this problem.” \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e– Cornelius Moore, California Newsreel\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “A shocking, extraordinary film…” \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e– Michael Eaton, screenwriter\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"A Brave and Brilliant Production\" \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e– Hope for the African Village Child Trust \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca title=\"stream-link\" target=\"_blank\" href=\"http:\/\/docuseek2.com\/ce-wog-es\" style=\"color: #000000;\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eStream\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e","published_at":"2012-04-26T13:21:00-07:00","created_at":"2012-04-26T13:21:36-07:00","vendor":"Yaba Badoe","type":"DVD ","tags":["ecofeminism","Kanopy","Public Library License"],"price":3999,"price_min":3999,"price_max":25000,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":213867400,"title":"University and College (with PPR*)","option1":"University and College (with PPR*)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"WOG-U","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"The Witches of Gambaga (educational) -

Every year in this part of Ghana, hundreds of women endure communal and domestic violence as a result of traditional religious beliefs that demonize women. It’s also assumed that it is in women’s nature to harm others. These beliefs, combined with decades of poor health and educational standards, mean women inhabit a world where it is believed that nothing – not even illness or death – happens by chance. For over a century, women from all over the northern region have found refuge in a camp in the town of Gambaga, where they live under the protection of the chief, Gambarrana, the custodian of one of four places of sanctuary for women condemned of witchcraft. Made over the course of 5 years, this disturbing expose is the product of a collaboration between members of the 100-strong community of \"witches\" and women’s movement activists determined to end abusive practices and improve women’s lives in Africa. Painful experience and insight come together to create an intimate portrait of the lives of women ostracized by their communities. Told largely by the women themselves, their incredible stories and struggles are conveyed to a wide range of audiences by the director’s narration.\u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36865915\" height=\"400\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\n\u003cp style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/collectiveeyeblog.tumblr.com\/post\/40789800752\/interview-with-yara-badoe\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCLICK HERE\u003c\/a\u003e to read Collective Eye's interview with Director \u0026amp; Producer Yara Badoe\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Festival Documentary 2010 – Black International Film Festival UK\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e2nd Price – Documentaries, FESPACO 2011\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “An excellent exploration of how women are victimized… a valuable resource for understanding how to end this problem.” \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e– Cornelius Moore, California Newsreel\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “A shocking, extraordinary film…” \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e– Michael Eaton, screenwriter\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"A Brave and Brilliant Production\" \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e– Hope for the African Village Child Trust \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca title=\"stream-link\" target=\"_blank\" href=\"http:\/\/docuseek2.com\/ce-wog-es\" style=\"color: #000000;\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eStream\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e"}
