Solar Mamas
co-presented with ITVS Community Cinema

Part of Women and Girls Lead and Why Poverty?, Solar Mamas follows Rafea, a beautiful, strong-willed 32-year-old Jordanian mother of four, traveling outside of her village for the first time ever to attend Barefoot College's solar engineering program. India's Barefoot College, where rural, poor and often illiterate women from around the world are offered the rare opportunity to receive an education that teaches them how to make their communities self-reliant and sustainable. Once there, Rafea will join women from Guatemala, Kenya, Burkina Faso, and Colombia in a life-changing six-month job-training program that will transform her into solar engineer -- and change her life.

Mona Eldaief and Jehane Noujaim | 60 min | 2012


POST-SCREENING Q&A:

Mona Eldaief (Co-Director) was born in Cairo and raised in the United States. A graduate of New York University with a degree in political science and photography, she works as a director, director of photography and editor on documentary film and television projects around the world. Her documentary feature credits include Control Room, Startup.Com, A Wedding in Ramallah, and Her Name Is Zelda. Television credits include programs for Frontline World, Discovery Channel, ABC News, and MTV News and Docs. Eldaief also implemented a video diary exchange program between Israelis and Palestinians, which allowed young people in Israel and the West Bank to create video diaries that were then shared to initiate an ongoing dialogue about the conflict. She continued documenting global stories through video exchange for the international film event Pangea Day. For this live broadcast, Mona sent camera phones to NGOs and UNHCR refugee camps around the world and produced and edited their first-person film narratives.
