Let's Talk Trash with Faiza Hajji in Morocco

Denise Domergue, Kayla Sweet-Newhouse, Rufus Paisley, Pierre Schlumberger | 2017 | 4 min
Moroccans are the second largest consumers of plastic bags, which are casually discarded and left to litter the pristine environment. This heartwarming mini-documentary tells the story of women in a remote northern Moroccan valley who see the scourge of plastic bags as an opportunity to employ their traditional weaving expertise. They have organized themselves into a collective that both cleans up the countryside and wins them financial security and independence, all thanks to their beautifully crafted bags and decorative items.

Treasures from the Tides
Catherine Brookes | 2018 | 15 min
The incredible conservation efforts of AMBAS, a sea turtle hatchery in Barra de Santiago, El Salvador are highlighted in Treasures from the Tides. The women-led organization is protecting endangered sea turtles from illegal poaching by inviting former poachers to take part in the conservation of these valuable species. This short documentary was produced by Catherine Brookes and supported by EcoViva.

From Darkness to Light

Life is challenging for women in Zanzibar, a semi-autonomous region of Tanzania made up of numerous islands where half the population lives below the poverty line. Mothers and grandmothers in Zanzibar are becoming solar engineers thanks to training from Barefoot College - meaning they can bring electricity to their villages where previously they relied on paraffin.

Our Gorongosa, A Park for the People
Sean B. Carroll, James Byrne, Gráinne Keegan, Carla Rebai, Jared Lipworth | 2019 | 58 min
Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique has become one of Africa's most celebrated wildlife restoration stories. After a decade, Gorongosa's large mammal population has grown to over 100,000 animals. But the Park must find a way to co-exist with the 200,000 people living in surrounding communities. Dominique Gonçalves, a young African elephant ecologist, shares the inspiring story of how Gorongosa is becoming a new model for wildlife conservation and community development.
