Narrated by Morgan Freeman and from the writer of March of the Penguins, Where the Water Meets the Sky is a documentary about 23 women in rural Zambia who learn filmmaking as a way to speak out about their lives. Many in the group can’t read or write, most are desperately poor, and few have been exposed to film or television. But with the help of two teachers, this class of 23 women learn to shoot a film that portrays a subject of their own choosing. It involves an issue that is traumatic for them all, and rarely spoken about: the plight of young women orphaned by AIDS.What begins as a workshop about filmmaking becomes a journey in empowerment as the women rise to the challenge of advocating for change. In a community where women are rarely given the chance to speak up, the inspiring voices at the core of this moving documentary ring loud and clear.
