Lioness

"Lioness tells the story of a group of female Army support soldiers who were part of the first program in American history to send women into direct ground combat. Without the same training as their male counterparts but with a commitment to serve as needed, these young women fought in some of the bloodiest counterinsurgency battles of the Iraq War and returned home as part of this countries generation of female combat veterans. Lioness makes public, for the first time, their hidden history.

Ihuriro

"An ihuriro is a traditional Rwandan collective community effort to achieve something practical for households. This might be working on each other's land in turn, caring for elders or rebuilding a house.
