In 2012, we launched our first project "Darkness Under The Sun", a short film about arranged marriages and the negative effects on young people's lives. The film won the Best of Alaska award at the Alaska International Film Festival.
Our latest project MÉBÉT (A Mother's Plea) also engages with the subject of arranged marriage, but focuses more on the effects of child marriage on girls, families and the society as a whole. MÉBÉT was produced and completed in 2019, and was premiered in The Gambia in January 2020. Prior to this, in December 2019, the film was screened in schools in The Gambia, as part of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. MÉBÉT has already been accepted as part of the official selection for the African Women Art and Film Festival and the 10th Charlotte Black Film Festival.
We are currently developing the concepts for our next projects, exploring a range of subjects including depression and the ignorance society often still has towards this condition, as well as knife crime, a major subject in the urban society of the UK.
