Campaign successfully funded on: 19 Sep,2014

This project has been successfully funded with $5,576 (186%)

Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

What is the project about?


The idea is to make nine videos; three in each once of the following three cities: Beirut, Cairo, and Tunis. The handled topics are: rape, sexual health, and the conception of transgender and marriage in the Arab societies. The same story is told in three different realities to show the specificity of each country but at the same time the common struggle for women's and minorities' rights. Here's a quick summuary of the stories we gonna tell:

-A group of young people drinking and loughing in a café/bar. What are they talking about?

-A woman is using the toilet like a man in a public place. What is the people's reaction?

-Two young single neighbors, a beautiful young woman and a good looking young man, take daily their dogs for a walk. What is going to happen between them?

We are already in contact with organisations in Lebanon and Egypt that support our work and project. 



Why do we need the money?

The aim of this campaign is to collect 3000$ to fund the first movie. We need 40.000$ to be able to shoot all the videos. But we would like to shoot a pilot, so we can ask for more fundings and work faster after that. We are a team of skilled technician and film makers. We need the money to cover travel costs from our residence countries (Tunis and Berlin) and the shooting location (The plan is to start with Beirut). 3000$ are enough for us to move and shoot our first movie and 5$ can make a huge difference!
