ALL WELCOME (Refreshments from 16:45)

Where the Water Meets the Sky 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 .

The film features Penelope, a young woman who shares her story on camera and who has since received the Goldman Sachs-Fortune Global Women Leaders award, which recognises women who are making great strides in improving their community. Penelope is a magnificent example to every community, in every country of what an educated young woman of courage can achieve.

The 60-minute film is a story of friendship, courage and hope that resonates with young people internationally. Among the 23 young women who were trained in filmmaking, many were non-literate – demonstrating the power of film for addressing complex and contentious issues.
