Tapestries of Hope is an astounding story told through the eyes of filmmaker Michealene Cristini Risley. The film is a powerful documentary that exposes the horrors of the rape and sexual abuse of thousands of young girls in Zimbabwe by men who believe it will cure HIV/AIDS.
Documenting the work of CNN Hero, renown child and human rights activist Betty Makoni and her organization, Girl Child Network, Tapestries of Hope follows the journey to healing taken by the girls who arrive at GCN daily. Caught in the crossfire of a country devastated by poverty, limited medicine and the increasing use of girls as charms to heal illness, Tapestries of Hope allows us to witness the resiliency of these girls who refuse to be defined by their abuse.
The movie is scheduled to help raise awareness of the International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) and urge audience members to contact their representatives.
