“The Daughter Tree” by Rama Rau

Daughter Tree 4 430x258

Monday 25th November, 19:00 (Cinéma Galeries)  

To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, [email protected] and ICPD25, the United Nations and the European Commission present: 'The Daughter Tree'.

‘The Daughter Tree’ is about the disappearance of women in India resulting in all-male populations in many of the villages. The film follows a midwife struggling to encourage women to bring baby girls into the world. In the Village of Men, where no baby girl has been born for two decades, families are marooned in a womanless existence. It's when we visit the Village of the Daughter Tree that we discover something quite magical has been going on in a remote corner of India. Every time a baby girl is born, a tree is planted.
