  • Narrated by Academy Award winning actress Meryl Streep, SHOUT GLADI GLADI celebrates the extraordinary people who rescue African women and girls from obstetric fistula, a medical condition that can turn them into reviled outcasts. Directed by Adam Friedman and Iain Kennedy, and filmed in Malawi and Sierra Leone, the film spotlights the quest of Ann Gloag - founder of the Freedom from Fistula Foundation, a partner of the Campaign to End Fistula - to support these vulnerable women, and presents the survivors as they tell stirring tales of their struggles and triumphs. Everything culminates with the exuberant Gladi Gladi ceremony, a singing and dancing blowout that marks the day the women and girls return home cured.

    Opens in New York City and Los Angeles from 2 October 2015; screens in Washington, DC on 7 October 2015; starts in San Francisco on 9 October 2015.
