Shout Gladi, Gladi

Thursday 8th December at 7:30pm

We are delighted that Lois Boyle has arranged a screening of a brand new documentary filmed in Malawi and Sierra Leone featuring the work of Freedom From Fistula and Ann Gloag.

Narrated by Academy Award winning actress Meryl Streep, SHOUT GLADI, GLADI celebrates the extraordinary people who rescue African women and girls from obstetric fistula, a medical condition that can turn them into reviled outcasts.  The film presents the patients as they tell stirring tales of their struggles and triumphs. Everything culminates with the exuberant Gladi Gladi ceremony, a singing and dancing blowout that marks the day the women return home cured.
