China: Stories of Birth – Women Empowerment Through Media

Categories: China, Digital Storytelling, Digital Video

Our project seeks to create an open, honest dialogue in rural communities, as well as national and international communities, about issues surrounding motherhood and child-bearing in rural China. Workshops in filmmaking and interview techniques shall be offered to train young participants in the local community. After the workshops, participants will interview and film their mother at home, producing a series of short films to be shown at screening sessions in local, national and international communities. Discussion about women's issues will be encouraged on a variety of platforms
