    This is exactly the sort of film I want to see more of. I’m interested in seeing and hearing these women’s stories on screen because I want to know how other women of colour live and survive in other parts of the world from their own mouths.
    When women get to tell their own stories, there is power in owning and sharing their stories, experiences and having the platform to use their voices. These women expressing themselves in their own native tongue makes this stand out from other similar films that have been made and gives it authenticity.
