ABOUT THE FILM

Facing an epic drought, soaring food prices and widespread food insecurity, three generations of indomitable South African women create a community garden in this beautiful and uplifting film. Award-winning Métis filmmaker Christine Welsh documents what can happen when women take matters into their own hands, and how collaborative local action can give even the most vulnerable people a measure of control over their lives and their future, mitigating some of the worst effects of climate change. This remarkable story of resilience won the Matrix Award for Outstanding Achievement in a BC Short at the Vancouver International Women in Film Festival.
