Description:
  Three resilient women fight for better futures for their children in one of the most misunderstood countries in the world - Madagascar - a beautiful African island nation crippled by decades of political instability and crushed by international sanctions imposed in 2009.

------
Background:

Fed up with increased poverty and widespread corruption, Madagascar's citizens took to the streets in protest. After the president was forced to resign, the international community terminated most foreign assistance to this chronically impoverished island nation. Over 60% of the country's revenues were immediately wiped out, resulting in the dramatic curtailment of education, health care, sanitation and access to food.

Madagasikara offers us a look at an island we don't know, past the serene beaches and the lovable, profitably animated wildlife, into the perilous lives of three strong, tireless mothers working to create better futures for their children. After four years of filming and post-production, this film is now being submitted to film festivals throughout the world. Our goal is to bring awareness about the real Madagascar and how its unique people have been punished by decades of domestic political instability and the hypocrisy of the international community. In doing so, we hope to raise money for the most impoverished children of Madagascar.
