ELLE TRAVAILLE, ELLE VIT!
Sunday, September 28th 2008
Please come join us for the screening of Elle Travaille, Elle Vit! (She Works, She Lives!). Produced, directed, and edited by Peace Corps volunteers with funds from the US Embassy and SeneGAD.
She Works, She Lives! is a documentary that explores the role of women in Senegalese society and highlights the importance of girl’s education in particular. Each of the five women interviewed for the film come from diverse backgrounds and followed distinct paths to get to where they are today. Some of them come from small villages while others come from urban environments, some from supportive families and others from less supportive families. But at some point in their lives, each of these five women realized that she had the potential to be more and to achieve more than what was expected of her. This documentary looks at the histories of these inspiring women, the feelings they have about their work and their upbringing, and their hopes for the future of Senegalese women.
Following the film, there will be a brief Q&A session with the director, PCV Barry Pousman. Concessions will be available for purchase. Donations to SeneGAD are welcome.
