A film for International Women's Day to launch the global ITC and United Nations female initiative #SheTrades
Launched to mark International Wmon's Day, this film receives it's first major screening in Geneva, to spearhead a global initiative called #SheTrades, an ambitious programme to get 1 million new female entrepreneurs to market by 2020. The Geneva screening was followed by a broadcast panel discussion which included Sefa Gohoho, one of the stars of the film. Aside from the main film, which was sponsored by Maersk for ITC, I also wrote and directed two further films about each of the cast members. Sefa is an online entrepreneur who decided that the future for the women of Africa was in the creation of new flower farms. Claire and Emma are two young female fishermen in Alaska, who also own their own lifestyle and fashion brand, Salmon Sisters. Each of them provide a powerful voice for the shared ambitions of a new generation of women, all across the world.
The music for this film is an original score by Kevin Pollard (with an additional theme by Garry Bell). The song 'Sisters' was written by Kevin, Sarah Howells and Malcolm Green. The astounding vocal is by Sarah, recording as Bryde
