    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, the indefatigable philanthropist and former nurse who drives the movement to save these vulnerable women, and presents the patients 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.  
       
   

“This POWERFUL film attests to the IGNITING power of one woman
to set in motion hundreds of helping hands to resuscitate the health
and status of victims of fistula and give them back their lives.”
– Meryl Streep

“We need to empower women, quite honestly,
from the bottom up, and not just the top down.”
– Melinda Gates, appearing in the film

“Stop writing about it and start doing it.”
– Ann Gloag, Freedom from Fistula Foundation

“Without a woman there is no society as far as I am concerned.
Let’s empower these women.”
– Hawa Hawatouri, Founder, Haikal Institute
