Watch Trailer For ‘Madagasikara’ Out Friday, June 26

In 2009, fed up with increased poverty and widespread corruption, Madagascar’s citizens took to the streets in protest. After the president was forced to resign, the international community terminated most foreign assistance to this chronically impoverished island nation. Over 60% of the country’s revenues were immediately wiped out, resulting in the dramatic curtailment of education, health care, sanitation and access to food.

MADAGASIKARA is the story of three resilient women (Lin, Tina and Deborah) fighting for the survival of their families and the education of their children against the overwhelming forces of domestic political instability, international political hypocrisy and the crushing poverty caused by both.
