Directed by David Eberts and Helen Cotton, Where the Water Meets the Sky, tells the inspiring story of a group of women in a remote region of Northern Zambia who achieve the unimaginable: they learn how to make a film as a way to speak out about their lives, raising awareness of the unique struggles they face.
