International Day of the Girl

Tall as the Baobab Tree follows two sisters torn between loyalty to their elders and their dreams for the future, and struggling to find their footing at the outer edge of the modern world.

This award-winning feature film resulted from the collaboration of a group of young village students divided between those whose parents sent them to school and those whose parents chose to follow the deep-rooted practice of early arranged marriage.

Today, many schools and universities use Tall as the Baobab Tree to enrich their curriculum by introducing students to this unique voice from Africa’s young generation.View the Trailer.
