Bayelsa, Delta & Rivers State (56 min)

Daughters of the Niger Delta captures the lives of three everyday heroines in Nigeria’s severely polluted Niger Delta region. They manage to make ends meet against all odds. As their personal stories unfold, we come to see that the widely ignored environmental pollution in their backyard is not the only human rights violation affecting their lives.

The film has powerfully drawn public attention to the human rights situation of women in the Niger Delta. Daughters of the Niger Delta has been displayed at film festivals across the world, and received rave press and TV reviews in Nigeria and abroad. It was honoured by five global awards including Al Jazeera's New Horizon award.

Bayelsa, Delta & Rivers State (30 min)

This film, produced as part of the EU-funded project ‘Tomorrow is a New Day, focuses on the conflict experiences of a variety of people including former freedom fighters, parents of a rape victim, traditional chiefs, and people who lost their relatives in times of conflict. The film encourages people to think about steps to be undertaken to retain the current fragile peace in their communities. Returning to a life of normalcy – even if one genuinely desires to - isn’t always easy given the scars of violence and the need for reconciliation between parties that each have their own injuries. Rather than giving pre-fixed answers, 'Beyond Amnesty' challenges viewers to think about their own steps forward. 

Production: MIND. Funding: EU, Tomorrow is a New Day Project.

Tuomo, Delta State (10 min)

This film highlights the human impact of poor public health care service delivery in the Niger Delta, especially for women and children. The inadequate medical and health education provisions in the region annually account for a much higher death toll than the much-reported armed violence and kidnappings in the region.

Production: MIND & FLL. Funding: Cordaid & Netherlands Embassy in Abuja.

Maternal Struggles

 

Bonny Island, Rivers State (12 min)

The amount of oil that has leaked into the Niger Delta since the first oil extraction activities in the 1960s is more than three times as much as the oil that was spilt into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. While this oil disaster made headlines around the world, news media rarely report about the extractives pollution in the Niger Delta. 'Lost Livelihoods' shows how people’s health and livelihoods are affected, and how women more than anyone else feel the burden.

Production: MIND & FLL. Funding: Cordaid & Netherlands Embassy in Abuja.

Lost Livelihoods

 

Bodo city, Rivers State (10 min)

This film illustrates the cycle of poverty that many widows in the Niger Delta and beyond are trapped in. Often deprived of their land and household properties, many widows struggle to make ends meet and provide for their children’s basic needs.

Production: MIND & FLL. Funding: Cordaid & Netherlands Embassy in Abuja.

Widowhood challenges

 

Obiaruku, Delta State (8.5 min)

Women more than anyone else feel the burden of the poor public water supply facilities in the region. The endless task of fetching water eats into their available time for generating an income. Enhancing women’s participation in decision-making might help to give water supply the attention it deserves on the public agenda. The film ends with a spark of hope that illustrates the power of the camera.

Production: MIND & FLL. Funding: Cordaid & Netherlands Embassy in Abuja.
