BYKIDS NEXT FILM FROM SENEGAL
We found our filmmaker in Senegal! Ndèye Fatou Fall is a dynamic 13-year-old girl from the village of Keur Simbara. Her village abandoned female genital cutting and forced marriage since the late 90s and we are helping her explore how that has affected this young person’s life. Working with mentor Elizabeth Hummer, we are looking forward to our second film of our new series.
