In partnership with African Film Festival New Zealand, we bring you Children of the Mountain - a stirring story of a young rural mother’s social ostracism after she gives birth to a child with a deformity.
Essuman, a yam seller and a single parent, gives birth to a child with cleft palate, who is later diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The stress of taking care of a disabled child, being unable to find a cure, and being duped, taken advantage of, or mislead by various people claiming to help, drives Essuman to make a difficult decision.
This will be an eye-opening film into another culture and it’s historical traditions, and a powerful story about motherhood.
Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards our work in ending hunger.
Thanks to our partner - African Film Festival New Zealand.
