ANOTHER MAN’S GARDEN (O Jardim do Outro Homem)

For a young girl who wants to study medicine in Mozambique, the obstacles extend far beyond the distractions of her boyfriend and her family. A moment of weakness or an error in judgment can cost her a place at the university, an irretrievable loss in a country with so few opportunities for women.

Sol de Carvalho dedicates this film to the courage of young women who continue to strive against the odds, proving that educating a girl is not a waste of time in a land where it is perceived that “sending a girl to school is like watering another man’s garden.”

“Full of telling details, Carvalho’s film illuminates the barriers faced by women seeking an education in Mozambique.”
