Grandmother to Grandmother: New York to Tanzania

60 min - USA John Ankele

The film introduces two projects, one in the South Bronx and one in Tanzania, in which grandmothers are stepping in to raise their grandchildren who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS, drugs, and violence. When some grandmothers and their grandchildren from the Bronx travel to Africa to meet their Tanzanian counterparts, there is instant recognition and a clear sense that 'sisterhood is powerful.'
