About the Filmmaker

Amelie Truffert and Paul Drawbridge are first time film makers. Researchers by trade, they heard about Jackline’s story whilst living in Kenya and decided to make a documentary to help break the cycle of shame of menstruation


More From the Filmmaker

Talk about menstruation — your periods — openly! Talking removes the shame. Call your period your period, don’t use euphemisms. This will help young girls realize that there is no shame when saying “I have my period”. Don’t apologize for having your period. It’s an amazing natural event that should be celebrated.
