YourFlowersDidNotFade
Your Flowers Did Not Fade

Christin Chae’s Your Flowers Did Not Fade won the Judges’ Choice Award at Girls Impact the World 2017. This moving film shares the deeply personal stories of now elderly Korean victims of Japan’s World War II “comfort stations.” The film shows how a new generation of Koreans is keeping their stories alive and demanding justice for their “grandmothers.”

WhatILoveTheMost
What I Love Most

What I Love Most, by Nguyen Thi Kieu Oanh, won the 2019 Green IS Environmental Film Award. In this lyrical portrait of a place, 11-year-old Sung Thi Lan shares her love of her village, with its clear stream and rich upland fields, where few children have the opportunity to go to school.

Asma
Asma

Pooja Khati’s film Asma, which won the Let Girls Learn prize at Girls Impact the World 2015, is a portrait of one girl in Bangladesh who, like millions of girls around the world, is not in school. Asma works 14 hours a day at her father’s tea stand to help support her family. But she is clear about her life’s dream: to get an education.

TheSkinTone
The Skin Tone Rule

In The Skin Tone Rule, filmmaker Amanda Gordon recalls when she first noticed that she looked different from her white classmates. With a poetic narration and creative visual approach, this film conveys what it’s like to be a young woman of color who is made to “feel less” than her classmates, who tries to blend in, and ultimately learns to feel at home in her own skin.
