That Girl

by Cornelia Gantner Hashtag #GetUpStandUp

Gladys lives by a clear principle: stand up for what you think is right. Her ambitious project to build a farm and a school in the village of Chewe in Zambia was born out of this attitude to life. Gladys, herself born and raised in Zambia, knows that the future prospects of children here, especially girls, are not very promising. Most of them are forced to marry at a young age, and their desire for education and independence remains unfulfilled. Director Cornelia Gantner accompanied Gladys in her tireless struggle for progress in a patriarchal society obsessed with tradition over several years. A personal portrait about a woman who is not afraid to take on the powerful or to stand up for her convictions.
