IT’S THE RENAISSANCE, A TRUE REBELUTION
“We are producing films that question critical aspects of our society and start a conversation as a first step for change.”
OUR LATEST FILM - MÉBÉT
MÉBÉT (A Mother's Plea) tells the story of one girl’s attempt to turn the tragedies of the past into lessons for the future. It is a conversation across generations to deliver positive change.
The film showcases aspects of West-African culture to counter the negative narratives about the continent, and portray the reality of our journeys through stories of resilience and hope.
Taking MÉBÉT where it matters most
MÉBÉT may be fiction, but the child marriage is reality for millions of girls around the world. For us, children’s voices matter, and they must be included in the conversations to end child marriage. We have begun engagements with adolescents and youth, through film screenings in schools and community centres.
Child marriage has been illegal in The Gambia since 2016. However, the implementation of this legislation is weak. We must do more to ensure that our laws serve their purpose and provide the required protection. These conversations are a great vehicle for accountability and advocacy for more action.
