Cam Cowan is a former law professional, turned award winning director. His film, Madagasikara will demonstrate that his new career path was a wise choice. In 2009, 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, MADAGASIKARA had a successful film festival run in 2018 and 2019 and is now in distribution. The film will be available 6/26 on Amazon Prime and other distributors. For more information check out the official website. http://www.madagasikarafilm.com
