"When Grandmothers speak, peace will return to the Earth." (HOPI PROPHECY)
About the film:
Set between a tiny village and the largest slum in Africa, comes a story of two remarkable grandmothers.
A Grandmother’s Tribe is an award-winning (Finalist, DocNZ Festival 2016 // Humanitarian Award, Sonoma Film Festival 2007) for-purpose film that reveals the lives of countless grandmothers of Africa, left behind after the loss of their own children, who, with determination and tenderness are now responsible for the rearing of more than 13 million orphaned children in sub-Saharan Africa.
Directors, Dean Easterbrook and Qiujing Wong, of Borderless bring audiences an unobstructed story of Emmanuel Makokha and Silas Odhiambo and the grandmothers who have selflessly stepped forward to raise, educate and prepare them for a better future.
