Uptown Video: Fronterizas

Two women, one from Haiti and one from Dominican Republic, are part of the Border Network of Women Artisans formed by 90 women from 7 frontier communities between Haiti and D.R.. They recycle and take advantage of the resources around them, seeking a better future for their families and their communities, and maybe without knowing, creating a better relationship between two countries.

“Fronterizas” (Frontier women) is a short documentary about good and beautiful people from difficult places of this world. It was Finalist in the Sundance Short Film Challenge.
