“Seeking Safety”: Stepping Stones in Malawi

Our film, made by Dr Dominique Chadwick with our partners COWLHA in Malawi, features as only one of four main-track films in the health & well-being section of the Film Festival.

Steven Iphani from COWLHA Malawi travelled to Delhi to present and talk about the making of this film, the associated participatory film training workshop and the great work of COWLHA Malawi in its adaptation of “Stepping Stones” to reduce gender-based violence experienced by COWLHA members.
