“Women War & Peace II” comes seven years after the five-part original series “Women War & Peace” which explored the peace-building role of women in volatile conflict zones around the world. Created by an all-female cast of directors, the never-before-told stories are about women who risked their lives for peace, changing history in the process. Each film has a running time of 50 minutes.
“A Journey of a Thousand Miles” follows a unit of 160 Bangladeshi women, on a UN peacekeeping mission to Haiti following the devastating 2011 earthquake, as they confront extreme poverty and devastated healthcare systems in their effort to build peace.
“The Trials of Spring” examines Egypt in 2011 where three Egyptian women fight for the goals of Arab Spring movement: “bread, freedom and social justice” for all. Caught between the military and the Muslim Brotherhood, the women find themselves being pushed backward.
The first two films will be shown on March 3 - click here for details.
