A bold, new narrative that is a must see!
6 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a film that needs to be seen everywhere because it provides a "new" narrative that challenges all preconceptions and stereotypes, which have been some of the greatest obstacles to peace. The filmmaker, Lisa Gossels, should be thanked for focusing on the lives of young girls. Too often, the voice of women/girls is ignored and forgotten in media, although they often play some of the most significant roles in bringing about social change. I commend Ms. Gossels for bringing our focus back on to the women in the struggle and their desire to build bridges for peace and reconciliation.

Being a female film producer/director takes courage in and of itself, but having the commitment and insight to present a new narrative as "her story" (v. the traditional "his" story) is radically bold and refreshing!
