Her Farm Films

A taster of our visit to Her Farm Films. Scott MacLennan explains his plans to raise women's status through media training, empowering them to tell women's stories and change the traditional male-dominated narrative in Nepal, just like Belmaya Nepali is doing - as documented in the forthcoming feature doc, I Am Belmaya. Belmaya tried out the state-of-the-art cameras and was interviewed for community radio by Sushila Aryal.

Her Farm Films Empowers Women in Nepal to Change the Narrative

Her Farm Films Empowers Women in Nepal to Change the Narrative | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
The Mountain Volunteer, The Mountain Fund and Her Farm Films announced a new volunteer program in Nepal today. Her Farm Films is the name of our production branch at Mountain Fund. The mission of Her Farm Films is to provide the training and equipment needed for Nepali women to produce short films about life in Nepal for women.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The narrative changes when you change the narrator.


Getting the voices of women heard is a crucial step in changing the conditions for women in Nepal. Ranked as one of the worst places on earth to be a woman, Nepal is a highly paternalistic society that affords little to no chance for women to get behind a camera and tell the stories of women. We will change that and acquire a voice for women in Nepal. 


If you have the required skills, a sense for adventure, an open heart, and the courage to volunteer you can help change the narrative for women in Nepal.
