TITLE: The Women’s Movement Continues: Grandmothers in Solidarity
GENRE: Documentary, women.
LOGLINE: Canadian Grandmothers welcome African Grandmothers to Canada on a journey into solidarity to end HIV/AIDS in African communities.
Traveling across Canada into over 40 communities in 65 days, the AfriGrand Caravan carried visitors from Africa to meet the Canadian Grandmother groups who have been supporting them through the Stephen Lewis Foundation. African Grandmothers and Grand Daughters shared their stories first hand of what present day living is like in the wake of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa, and what work they are doing to change their futures now. We meet a sample of the many amazing Canadian Grandmothers and others along the journey from St.John’s NFLD, to Victoria BC while listening to the voices of these women join their African sisters in solidarity. The relationships nurtured on this journey are touching, moving and an ever present example of what a group of compassionate people can do together to change a part the world. While showing us that women are the change makers.
