In a remote lake of Uganda, girls who were getting pregnant before marriage were abandoned on the tiny island of Akampene, aka Punishment Island. Here most died, but some were saved by men in search of free brides.
Laura Cini, an Italian filmmaker, went to the area on 2011 to look for survivors. The mission was successful and now she completed a hour documentary on the story which was supported by crowdfunders and the Italian Ministry of Culture. Premiering soon.

Last month of crowdfunding!
This is for sure our last month of crowdfunding, no more extensions are allowed after this, plus we need to get to Uganda in February before heavy rains make traveling too difficult around the lake. We are still in need of 42% of our budget and we are counting on your help. In the meanwhile we want to thanks those supporters who continue contributing during this holiday season! Thanks a lot to all of them:
