Screening of “The Silence of Women”

On 10 April we joined Mozambican Women’s Month celebrations (which began on 7 April, with Mozambican Women’s Day) by screening one of our first social documentaries "The Silence of Women".

Advocacy for PHC

We were delighted the audience liked the documentary’s message, yet at the same time we also recognised their concerns that what was screened continues to reflect the current situation.

On 10 April we joined Mozambican Women’s Month celebrations (which began on 7 April, with Mozambican Women’s Day) by screening one of our first social documentaries ‘The Silence of Women’. The documentary draws attention to the issue of HIV/AIDS, especially to the stigma and discrimination associated with the disease. These are significant barriers to its prevention and treatment as they stop people from overcoming fear and seeking the information, services and methods which reduce the risk of infection and support safer behaviour.

The documentary was screened in partnership with AMOCINE (Mozambican Filmmakers Association) in the “Darling – Beleza” compound – a beauty products factory in Matola municipality. It was one of the most well attended events in the last few years, with over 500 young people present, most of whom were women. We were delighted the audience liked the documentary’s message, yet at the same time we also recognised their concerns that what was screened continues to reflect the current situation.

We will continue to use this tool to mobilise people and advocate for behaviour change and improved public policies in this area.
