Human Rights Watch Film Festival NYC – IFC Center, London, Toronto, Amsterdam



The closing night film is Tall as the Baobab Tree at the IFC Center in New York or at screenings in Toronto and London. The film intimately captures the emotions of the traditional and modern worlds colliding through the perspective of two young sisters in a rural African village. Through the film’s empathy, not pity, for the main characters and their story, we get a more personal understanding of the very challenging issues that countless young girls in the developing world must face.
