Project Description:
This team has focused on specific challenges and responsive innovations to confront the maternal
health crisis in Sierra Leone, with the long-term goal of producing a festival-ready documentary film.
At this point, the team is focused on three shorter docu-stories that highlight both the extent of the
problem and some of the innovations. These shorter videos will be distributed in online formats to
garner publicity and financial support for the project.
