The Cairo Conference on Population and Development marked a watershed in international debate about global population. But how are individual countries and communities shaping up to the challenges set at Cairo? “Not the Numbers Game” looks at the progress - or lack of progress - on the agreements signed at Cairo. Each of the short films was made by a woman filmmaker for the relevant country or region. The titles are: Mothers of Malappuram (India), Land of Widows (Cambodia), On the Way (Peru), Invisible Garments: Expensive Soles (Indonesia), The Cutting Edge (Uganda), Fighting Back (Bosnia). Made up of six individual shorts (10 mins ea.) edited to 44 mins.
