Experiencing Interruptions?


“Dilemma “is a short film Written,produced and directed by Dell Davies a young Liberian film maker from the west coast of African .The film teaches our teenagers most especially girls on the importance of prioritizing education rather than boys or sexual relationship. Liberia is amongst the poorest countries around the world, therefore girls education and women’s rights to gender equity is slim. The significance of women empowerment cannot be denied. This is mainly due to the fact that economic development and women empowerment are strongly correlated. The government of the country can be able to initiate various programs to enhance women’s effectiveness in education and economic activities, as they represent 50% of the nation’s workforce. The film “Dilemma “ was written based on the concept of helping promote adolescent girls, and their rights to education, decisions making etc. The film promotes economic equity and equality!! Equal access to equal education for all! The film embodies an idea of women empowerment and a commitment to the advancement of today’s girls and tomorrow’s mothers through education as a basic human right. But unless there is deliberate, concrete and sustained action taken for self-empowerment, taking control of one’s own life goals, this dream cannot be realized in a poor and patriarchal third world country like Liberia where attending school for girls is yet to be an option that it should be, a male dominant society inherent. with such cultural barriers to girls’ education as early marriage, dowry payment, lack of requisite educational opportunities, violence against women and internal and external human trafficking are all concepts this film is based on. The fact is that even where there may be schools, most girls do not attend due to poverty, cultural or religious pressures. Socialization of the girl child now seems to have taken a life of its, where young girls, often underage girls, follow a set of social patterns of being trapped and molded as breadwinners for families and holds.
