Gati’s “Big Day”

I’m top-posting this because Beryl has finished the trailer and you can view it here.

— original post from 24 Nov 2010 —

Beryl Magoko is a Kampala University film class student (my friend, Andreas, is her professor).  As I write this she is shooting her graduation film about a topic that has been on her mind for a long time: Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) of girls in her home area in Kenya.  This is happening right now and she’s there to record the stories of all involved.

I made a donation to support this worthy project and I encourage you to do the same.  Click here (pdf, 38k) for the expose/treatment of this 30 minute documentary.
