Hivos | Who Owns Identity

Who Owns Identity | Hivos

The struggle for sexual diversity and an inclusive society is ongoing. It’s a struggle for equal rights, but also a struggle to be accepted in the community, in culture, within the family and at the workplace. What is ownership of your identity, the local context and the barriers to achieve it?

Hivos celebrated its 50th anniversary with an event for all Hivos employees and its management. As part of the program, 5 short films in 5 different countries (produced by Makmende) were shown. Each film highlights an important theme that Hivos supports: one of them was “identity”, seen in the film above. We translated every theme into a personal story about the frontrunners of Hivos.

During this project Makmende was able to shoot the frontrunners of Hivos from different corners of the world simultaneously. Due to our network of local crews we were able to make multi-country productions as cost efficient as it can be. Curious to know more? Drop us a line below and we will contact you.
