Maasai Daughters

Samantha Andre

Maasai Daughters is a documentary and campaign on the subject of female genital mutilation (FGM) and early forced marriage in the Maasai community of Kenya. The film follows the lives of girls rescued from FGM and early forced marriage as well as the change makers in the community surrounding them. The goal of the project is to document social change and the battle for gender equality after these longtime traditions become criminalized in rural Kenya.

Once complete, the film will be hosted in a series of local screenings and panels, where the next generation of Maasai are proving that cultural change does not mean the end of their culture. The project is connected with AIC Rescue Program, an on the ground nonprofit in Kenya.
