A story of a family's unending love that continues to search for their bride kidnapped daughter, even to the most unlikeliest places that no one dares to go.
After the Rain is a non-profit, feature narrative film about a Kyrgyz family’s unbreakable love for their daughter. Inspired and based off real-life events, the story is told through the perspective of the father, whose love for his daughter does not change despite her being bride kidnapped, and eventually ending up in what is culturally ‘the most shameful place one could possibly be.’ Our goal is to inspire the families of Kyrgyzstan to value loving their children greater than the existent honor/shame culture, which could dramatically decrease the amount of women’s rights issues happening within this country.
Once the film is finished, our goal is to provide free screening festivals with our partner organizations and NGO’s dedicated to these human rights issues. The screenings will be paired with educational seminars in villages where these issues are heavily prevalent. By pairing educational seminars with visual storytelling, we want to affect both mind and emotion, which can inspire locals themselves to take action.
