THE PRICE OF HOPE
A Documentary Film (in post production)
The Price of Hope is a film about strength and resilience amid inconceivable trauma. While the film reveals the dangerous practices of female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage, it gives a voice to the rescued girls. It emboldens them to inspire and encourage others in their community and beyond.
The film follows the extraordinary work of Dorcus and John Parit, who boldly go against tradition to rescue girls in Kimana, Kenya, from FGM and child marriage. Taken to the safety of Hope Beyond Transitional Center, the girls find safe refuge, recover, and receive a quality education, as many of them have never been to school before their rescue. Accounts from some rescued girls, the Parits’ point of view, and commentary from activists drive the story.
"Female genital mutilation (FGM) and early childhood marriages among the local people is rampant. Child brides are deprived of childhood rights. They are subject to violence and sexual abuse."
