Filmed by the first group of women filmmakers in rural Zambia, HIDDEN TRUTH is a candid and intimate portrayal providing an insight into a world that is rarely exposed – the lives of women and children who survive domestic violence. Having long remained silent for fear of persecution by their communities and retaliation by their partners, five survivors of domestic violence in Samfya, a remote region of Northern Zambia, decided to speak out on film about one of the most urgent problems faced by their community and by millions of others around the world.
This touching film won the award for Best Documentary at the 2011 Zanzibar International Film Festival.
